An Intense Battle With The Wind

Landing an airliner during a crosswind is no easy task. Experiencing turbulence is a given in these conditions. However, the passengers aboard this Dash 8 were not expecting this much turbulence in under a minute.

The plane could be seen veering from side to side while battling the winds. It was descending at a normal pace, but with the plane almost parallel to the runway. Fortunately, the pilots seemed to know what they were doing. 

After a lengthy one-minute battle against the heavy winds, the Dash 8 finally landed smoothly after touching the ground. The passengers and the crew can finally breathe again.
