Watch 767 Landing In a 40 MPH Crosswind (Unless You're a Nervous Flier)

The video below shows he final minute of approach and landing of a Boeing 767 airplane touching down through a 40 mph crosswind. This is not for the faint of heart - if you are a nervous flier, you probably don't want to watch.

Don't worry, the plane safely reaches the ground. But the strong winds blowing across the runway buffet the plane as if it was some kind of toy. It rocks back and forth, up and down, one wing dipping then the other, and when it hits the ground it does so crooked and bouncing.

The footage was shot at Birmingham Airport in England.
