A British Airways flight was diverted Monday after strong winds caused the entire plane to sway.

According to the Daily Mail, the flight took off from London's Heathrow Airport and had to be diverted to Malaga, Spain.

Daily Mail says passengers in the plane were panicking during the ordeal.

Plane staff reportedly warned passengers there would be a rough ride due to weather, Daily Mail says, and pilots eventually decided to land as a precaution.
