The wings can be seen swaying in the gales, and, according to Yahoo News, due to crosswinds, the pilot forces the plane down in a straight line as opposed to the normal gradual descent.

The video was uploaded by Jeremy Jones, who wrote: "Very reassuring that the undercarriage can take this sort of punishment without blowing itself to pieces."

Another user wrote simply: "Nailed it!", while another wrote: "Impressive landing, must have been scary to be a passenger on that flight ."
