Horror landing attempt at Heathrow Airport due to high winds

A British Airways jet was filmed nearly toppling onto its side during a horror landing attempt at Heathrow Airport in London.

Footage captured by plane spotters on Monday showed the jet, which had departed from Aberdeen, sway heavily on to its left side as it approached the runway.

The video, shown on Big Jet TV, showed the plane almost lean heavily to one side as its tail appeared to make contact with the ground, creating a cloud of what aviation enthusiasts call plane dust.
