As storm “Emma” blew across Germany with windspeeds of over 75mph, Lufthansa flight LH44 from Munich to Hamburg was nearly blown off the runway — and its left wing actually struck the ground. The pilot managed to get the plane back up into the air, and the plane landed safely about 15 minutes later.
Onboard were 137 very freaked out and — ultimately — very grateful people.
Watch the crazy almost-landing here:
Hamburg is in the very north of Germany, just below Denmark. Munich is about 480 miles south.
