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.
