Pilot fails twice to land place at windswept Birmingham Airport and is forced to divert to Gatwick
An Emirates Airline plane was caught on video on Thursday as it struggled to land at Birmingham Airport in the UK in heavy winds.
David Goodship filmed the Emirates plane as it missed the approach and had to circle the runway before trying again.
After missing a second attempt to land the pilot was forced to divert to Gatwick airport.
Emirates flight (EK 039) was due to arrive at 11.50am at Birmingham.
Strong winds caused problems for planes trying to land at the airport but an airport spokesman told local media that no flights were cancelled.
