World's largest passenger plane battles strong winds at Manchester Airport

Emirates A380 filmed wobbling upon landing

Updated: 

The dramatic moment the world's largest passenger jet, the Airbus A380, battled against crosswinds as it prepared to land at Manchester Airport was caught on camera.

A video shows the Emirates A380 wobbling in the sky and as it descends closes to houses it appears to rock sideways before approaching the runway during a storm.

The footage is believed to have been filmed last year but has recently emerged online.

Steven Draper, representative of the British Airline Pilots' Association (BALPA), told the Daily Mail: "Landing in strong crosswinds or turbulence goes beyond the capabilities of the aeroplane's automatic pilot.

"A pilot should be alert and free from fatigue when landing, and be given the opportunity to develop excellent handling skills."

Earlier this year, propeller-powered light aircraft were filmed being shaken around while trying to land at the airport in the West Midlands.

The planes were battling winds of over 50mph as well as some heavy rain.

Flybe and Aer Lingus jets were seen struggling to land, some swaying in the air and others almost landing sideways.
