These aborted landings and violent take-offs will make anyone pale

Judging by this video, BHX (Birmingham, England) is one of the worst airports to land and take-off during the winter. Just watch and hold on to your chair:

Some landing and take-off highlights in awkward wind conditions at BHX this winter (a record winter for stormy conditions in the UK). Note the frequent flexing of the planes' wings in response to the turbulence.

Of the five "missed approaches" shown, three diverted to other airports, two were "go arounds" and landed successfully on second attempt.
