Landings and take offs are one of the most crucial times where things can quickly escalate.


 

Take the case of this Swiss A320 flight, landing at the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. 


 

The pilot attempted to land the plane amidst heavy crosswinds, and at the very last second decided to abort the landing.

 

Watch the video:

 


The pilot made a successful landing the second time around.  
 

In fact, this is a commonly applied method used by pilots while landing in crosswind situations and sometimes involves inclement weather as well.
