A storm dubbed "Emma" crashed into Europe last weekend, with wind gusts up to 190 km/h (118 mph), the strength of a Category 3 hurricane. Air traffic was disrupted for most of the weekend.
Why? Well, have a look at the video above, taken in Hamburg last Saturday. A Lufthansa Airlines flight scraped its wing on the ground during a landing attempt with cross wind.
Luckily, the Airbus A320 recovered, took off again and landed safely the second time around. All 131 passengers were safe.
My friend "E" (the other "E") was flying the same day. Read her (horror) story here.
