With Winds of up to speed 17 knots with gusts of 28 knots predicted, we weren’t going to let the cold stop us going out and filming!

This was just one of tonnes of amazing crosswind videos I managed to get on the 15th of September 2013 on a trip to Birmingham International Airport. This Monarch A320-214 had a lot of difficulty getting down safely on runway 15 at BHX/EGBB. Firstly, he seemed to misjudge the flare, it appears the pilot overestimated the weight of the aircraft for the speed he was going. He then brings it down, but then appears to hit wind shear and ends up touching down on one wheel. After bouncing back up, he makes the decision to get the Airbus A320 down on the ground instead of a go around. Finally, half way down the runway, and way off centreline, he brings it down. Slamming on the brakes and applying full reverse thrust, he somehow manages to stop well in time and vacate with taxiway C.
This was filmed from Sheldon Country Park on the 15th of September 2013. The aicraft arrived at around 11:30am. I went to Birmingham Airport on a spotting trip with my mate Will, check out his channel here: www.youtube.com/bristolcardifairport
