Video: Crazy Crosswinds Challenge Fliers

Pilots encounter more than they bargained for at U.K. airport.

Fliers landing at Birmingham Airport in the United Kingdom over the past few months encountered some pretty skill-testing conditions as strong crosswinds and wind gusts pummeled the runway area. Coupled with the additional challenge of an unlevel runway, the weather almost proved too much for some of the airplanes. Check out the footage in this video.
