Here’s some truly frightening footage of airplanes landing at Birmingham Airport in the UK. “Landing” actually might not be the best term for these though because the airplanes look more like they’re spinning sideways and tilting out of control and praying that their wheels touch the ground instead of bouncing off like a basketball. These giant flying machines look more like toys than actual airplanes holding hundreds of people.

Filmed by flugsnug, the landings at BHX airport are difficult because of the sudden change in wind speed and direction. Basically, don’t fly to Birmingham. Or any place that has wind.
