Have you seen this clip?!  If you haven’t, next time you fly you’re going to be sure to fasten your seat belt a little bit tighter.

Recently in Japan, an airplane nosedived over a runway when the pilot was attempting to land in over 100-mile-per-hour winds during a typhoon.  The video footage above shows the plane suddenly dipping forward while coming in for the landing at Tokyo’s Narita airport.

Despite the winds and extreme weather, the plane landed safely without incident, but over 300 flights were cancelled the following days.

This is a good reminder of how durable airplanes are nowadays and how experienced our pilots are.  But it’s also a reminder to always wear your seat belt!

Typhoon season in Japan has been damaging roads, bridges, airports and homes.  Already, over 138,000 residents are without power and another typhoon has recently shut down one of Japan’s largest airports, Kansai International, which is expected to remain closed indefinitely.

Difficult to comment as as I have a black screen with no plane.

Just had an awesome 11-hour flight to SFO on a Dreamliner today, my favorite plane. While “petrifying” videos might get you clicks it’s the totally normal flights like today’s that go unreported.

That photo isn’t a dreamliner. Get a grip. Fake news.

Hi Steve – did you watch the actual video clip in the post of the Dreamliner?

As a 777 pilot for a major global carrier, I question the judgement of any pilot who tries to land in 100mph winds unless there is no other option.

Indeed , whilst I am NOT a pilot but have a significant engineering background , I too question this decision, Our modern planes are well equipped with wind shear warning instrumentation, This looked like it could have been the cause . BUT in this instance a go around would have been easy to effect. Good Flying though.

I know nothing about flying planes or how they’re made.

But I think it is not wise to try to land in 160km/h winds.

Even if it is a head wind.

Come on kids that’s just normal weather stuff. You’re making it sound like the plane nose dove but all it did was lurch forward. Don’t sensationalize what’s not sensational
