A windy day at the airport

The remains of Hurricane Gonzalo made landfall in Britain two days ago, producing vicious crosswinds and nasty weather at Manchester airport yesterday morning.  This video clip shows aircraft from puddle-jumper commuters (ATR 72's and Dash 8's) to intercontinental widebodies (777's) and everything in between struggling to get down in the difficult conditions. I recommend watching it in full-screen mode for the best effect.

Glad I wasn't flying there yesterday . . .
