Lufthansa Landing...Horseshoes Up the Ying Yang on This Flight!

This is a heart-stopping video of a Lufthansa flight landing today at Hamburg in stiff crosswinds...watch the pilots struggle to bring the plane in on target.
Then the wind plays havoc with the plane, the left wingtip grazes the runway and the pilot pulls the plane up and out of danger, to circle the runway and lands successfully on the second go-round.
Many people saying their prayers on this flight, I think.
Many prayers were also answered.

I saw this one today also. It is amazing. That must have been one scary ride if there were passengers.

Marta...
There were 100+ passengers, according to the news broadcast! The pilots did a fantastic job of grabbing the plane and doing what they've been trained to do!

This is likely what happens to a lot of flights that crash on landing, only we never get to actually see it in progress.
Amazing.
