It seems there was a very strong crosswind at Bilbao airport in Spain recently. (It's near the Bay of Biscay, which is famous for its stormy weather during winter.) This video records a few attempts to land there, and one takeoff, during the strong winds. I'm very glad I wasn't on board any of the aircraft concerned - much less trying to fly one of them!
That's enough to make a pilot earn his pension the hard way . . .
