That was a close one.
 
Nail-biting video footage shows an airplane attempting to land at England’s Birmingham Airport when a powerful crosswind blows, Time reports. The video was posted by YouTube user Flugsnug .
 
The intense wind pushes the plane sideways and nearly off the runway, forcing the pilot to lift back up, turn around and make another attempt.
 
Thankfully, the pilot managed to land safely on the runway the second time.
