Unbelieveable AIRBUS A380 HARD CROSSWIND LANDING during a STORM at Düsseldorf - 4K

Passengers on an Emirates Airbus A380 that landed in Dusseldorf, Germany on Thursday afternoon are probably glad they had their seat belts fastened and tray tables secured.

"The unique and awful landing of an aircraft of Emirates at the global airport of düsseldorf. during hurricane Xavier, because of the strong gusty winds, the aircraft drifted to the left side of the runway", reads the description of the video posted on YouTube. In other words, it was every nervous flier's worst nightmare.

The winds came after storm "Xavier" battered parts of Germany yesterday, causing some traffic disruptions. As winds in Berlin and Hamburg reached up to 75 miles per hour, flights at the city airports were temporarily grounded and most public transportation was shut down, the Associated Press reports.

The landing occurred at the airport of düsseldorf.

This terrifying-but ultimately triumphant-footage was captured by plane enthusiast Martin Bogdan, who published the video on his YouTube channel Cargospotter.

The spectacular footage was shot by "Cargospotter", who wrote they "filmed a few thousand crosswind landings at several airports in Europe" - but this particular landing was "extraordinary". Just seconds to touchdown, pilot seems to have over yawed the aircraft to left to align the aircraft along the runway.

'I have never seen such a tremendous reaction of an airplane after a touchdown.

It worked out, indeed.

Emirates Spokesperson said passenger safety were not compromised at any point of the incident.
