Watch in HD + Fullscreen....Storm Callum made it's way through the UK on the 12th October 2018, causing wide-spread disruption particularly to Wales and the west of England. Bristol was one of the worst hit airports, with winds reaching 46 knot gusts, what's more, the wind was blowing directly across the runway! 😯 I headed up to Bristol Airport (BRS/EGGD) to catch some of the action. Here is all the footage I filmed between 09:50am and 13:30pm on the 12th October 2018. The wind was directly from the south at around 20-30 knots with gusts up to 46 knots! Check out some of the incredible pilot skill involved as the aircraft are flown in practically sideways! 🛬 Over a dozen planes diverted on the 12th, and a few more on the 13th too. Most went to Birmingham Airport, a couple to Cardiff Airport, and another to Gatwick Airport. Numerous flights were cancelled due to the weather disruption. In this video you'll see the whole thing unfold from when I arrived just before 10am as the wind was only around 25 knots to around 12:30pm when the winds were at their strongest. Lots of aircraft didn't even attempt to land because of the wind strength and direction - for many it was beyond the airline's limitations. 🌧 METAR: EGGD 121150Z AUTO 18028G46KT 9999 OVC018 16/14 Q1003 🌬 DAY 2 OF STORM CALLUM AT BRISTOL AIRPORT COMPILATION VIDEO ➡️ 😏 If you want to see more crosswind footage hit the thumbs up and I will be sure to get some more! 👍 Feel free to share and comment too 😀 ▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼▲▼ ➮ Social... ○ Twitter: ○ Facebook: ➮ Equipment - ○ Camcorder: Panasonic HDC-HS60 ○ ATC: Uniden UBC75XLT ○ Tripod: Velbon DV-7000 ○ Editing Software: Sony Vegas Pro 14 I hope you enjoyed the video and thanks for watching.

Oh - and what I REALLY like about people like you is, you go out in the freezing cold, rain and wind, shoot professional standard video, and then share it (for free!) with people like us. Maybe the world is not so crazy after all??

That was my wife landing that 757 yesterday! Absolutely amazing flying skills...
nick spruytenburg
I think the situation is made worse by Bristol Airport's exposed position. Absolutely heroic piloting skills, showing the terrific training they must all go through these days. Safety first, and no casualties.
Katanya Jason
That TUI, was like: "Hold my beer" :D
Here's the full 20+ minute spotting video from yesterday, showing lots of bumpy landings and takeoffs at Bristol Airport 😃 Hit the thumbs up if you enjoyed the video:D
All I can say from that is well done easyJet!! Their pilots look so under control
Dominique Roudier
Tui 757 Good pilots👍✌💪👏
Flying home to Bristol from Ireland in a baked bean tin with wings landing side ways 1998. Il never forget it especially the rowdy rugby team sat behind. The plane went quiet then when we stopped one of them shouted Has anyone got a spare pair of pants? I didnt laugh until an hour later. Great vid.
That 757 was madness! Awesome video :)
Royal MC
Nothing worse than coming home from a holiday in the sun to a scary landing in terrible weather.
Jonathan Winton
Oh wow that 757 at the end there, absolutely brilliant. Really well filmed mate, loved some of those departures too with the spray and the wind catching them as they rotated. Enjoyed that. Thanks for sharing Archie. Liked 😁✈👍
By all this comments, are people think this pilots are landing safe in this weather by luck? And this pilots are spesial superskilled more than other pilots? Any airline pilot do this. This is just another day in the office for a pilot. BTW nice video.
Andrew M
That was fantastic footage, the best I have seen for a long time and thanks for braving the elements to bring it to us! The landings were excellent considering the terrible conditions. I have left a like and subscribed, keep up the good work👍😀
Silas Marner
That EasyJet at 5:00 was freaking textbook .. well played, old boy!
joe hinch
And Ryanair wont even pay their pilot's a decent wage!
Sam Haddad
this is some Top Gun stuff Archie, a video dedicated to crosswind landings in a terrible storm, Crabbing the order of the day! what valiant multiple landings from swashbuckling flight crews. Thank you Arch!
@7:08 "Wind Check 177, 22 gusting 34" XD Fun. For anyone who doesn't know what that means. 177 is wind direction on a 360 degree compass heading. "22 gusting 34" means 22 knot wind speed with gust as high as 34 knots. Then at around 10:30 170, 27 gusting 37. A few seconds later "instant" 170, 29. Then less than 10 seconds later its 160, 22.
Gorbaz The Dragon
The ERJ 8:20 is textbook, absolutely perfect
Wow. Brilliant filming, and brilliant pilots. I cannot imagine being a passenger on any of those planes. Thank you for posting.
My Tics & I
That Aurigny made a lovely landing!
DrKate L.
FYI, saw this re-uploaded on FB (just the TUI landing) with a New China logo. Not sure if you gave permission or if it matters to you but wanted to let you know.
Arduino Banzi
A lot of professionalism on show here. Keeps us alive!
Samara Weaving
What a dull day?! Dreading winter. Thanks for the video.
Arthur Owen
I was onboard the EasyJet from Toulouse. White knuckles !!
this weather system evolved from hurricane Micheal
Anthony Peirce
well filmed and what skill the pilots have to land in very wind weather
Trevor Murdoch
Many thanks for sharing this great footage, excellent. I’ve just subscribed.
Hunter's Moon
Awesome work to you for capturing this footage and the pilots alike landing in strong winds.
Some amazing slipstreaming there from real professional pilots. Hats off. Thanks for the upload.
No Name
Amazing flying skills or just ******* crazy pilots whatever it is great job guys.....
Matt Thornton
BMI @ 8:30 Superb landing! Great skill shown by so many other pilots too
easyJet pilots showing us how it's done. Bravo!
Simply magnificent video!! Thanks for this upload!!
Michel Normandin
I am very impress with your dedication Mr Aviation Guy. You have a new subscriber!
Martin R.
Amazing footage, courtesy of the storm Callum ;)
Robert Sneddon
A big well done to all these professional ladies and gentlemen who got their aircraft down safely during these extreme conditions.
Sandi O'Regan
Wow! That is some crazy flying! Snaps to the pilots for the fascinatingly frightening landings.
Good weather for Bristol. Wind under 200 mph.
Adrian C
Great video. I was on a Tui flight over Bristol on that day, we were diverted to BHX after holding for around 30mins.
Fly Away / Rupert
Terrific video and great quality! In short: Perfect compilation 😉
Those Easyjet pilots have balls of steel! And superb skills.
I think those flyers get a lot of crosswind landing experience at UK airports!
Simon M Bush
Flipping 'eck that looks like a day down at our model flying club field! Brilliant piloting skills!
Best landing: 8:00 CRJ deftly flicks it in. They appear to handle quite nicely.
Cargo Jockey
Thanks for sharing, great filming and capture of a challenging day at Bristol.
richard c
Well captured.....brilliant landings and take offs by those pilots...the 757 wow!!!
Great job shooting in really sh*#t conditions. And thanks for having a proper windscreen on the mic !
Prof. M. Otto Zeee JCD ECS
Mraviationguy , thanks for doing this! Excellent piloting... and good training! ;-) Looks like the Airbus-pilots are braver than the Boeing ones ;-)
If nothing else, this ought to prove to phobic flyers that it CAN be done, even flying sideways. Everyone got up and down safely that day, even if it was at the wrong airport. Not that any pilot would want to fly in these conditions routinely, but they can do it if they have to and we're in good hands.
Brian Walker
Brilliant thanks for filming in this awful weather
Susan Siedler
Absolutely all at/after the 19:30 mark have mad skill or just •bleeping •mad! That was insane!
Damn dude must've been hard going out there in the cold, but thanks for doing for us!
Ian Ginn
Well done...great video ....👍
OMG! How do those pilots even know if they're lined up on the centre line facing the field beside the rwy! Bravo!
Ros H
Pilots are amazing. Glad I’m not in any of those planes. I’d have crapped my self 😩🤦🏽‍♀️😱💩 awesome video ty
Jonathan Jones
Great vid, some great skill shown by those pilots considering how short brs's runway is, squeeky bum time with no room for error lol
- Mike
The best at 8:25, ERJ. Impressive, well done.
A massive bravo to all the pilots . And passengers if I'd of been on one of those flights I'd of curled up in a ball somewhere 😂thanks for sharing great footage
Tremendous video. Everyone of those pilots deserves a bonus, so skilled.
Thondup Andrugtsang
These pilots are amazing.
i remember being in the tail end of the plane after a crosswind landing like that... after you land, you really feel the sideways force!
simon leaf2
The last plane seemed to really struggle! Brilliant video!
liz johnson stubbs
Fair play to these pilots #respect
Patrik Hultberg
Impressing work from all those skilled pilots. My friend who is flying a 747 (Kallitta Air) is telling me that crosswinds makes him excited of the opportunity to really fly the plane and work it down to the ground.
Walter Smeg
Stumbled on to this..those pilots are just awesome
DrKate L.
This is better than a feature film. Drama & Suspense in real life. I have the highest respect for pilots. 🥇🙏🏻😀
Chr Stein
The Easyjet at 1:20 was absolutely spot on. Job well done.
Does filming through the fence cause you any problems with focusing?
Hello Ward
Nice to see my mum land the Easy Jet A319! She works so hard :)
harvey halloway
Thanks for posting and praise to all those skilful pilots and ATC out there that keep people going to where they want to go!
jean-paul tshipambu
Up to me I can just say thanks to all the pilots for their good job
Haha Easyjet nails it, Ryanair nearly nose dives it!
Nice. I just flew back from Bristol, and it's one of those places where you can still see a lot of ERJ 135/145 traffic. I really like those tiny jets. It's quite impressive how they land them without any fuss in these conditions on Bristol's 2000 m runway and without reverse thrust.
Ian S
Excellent video thanks for sharing
Andrew Scullion
Amazing video!!! I'm flying in three days...I know this sounds completely off it's head but.....I'd love to be on a stormy landing (as long as i walked off in tact)...superb video mate!!!
maxwell thompson
Awesome Skills from all pilots 👍👏👏👏
gary salford
nice video man...well done to the pilots,must be hell of a lot of pressure on them
Have to say, some brilliant flying there!
Nice landing of easyjet 737
X Aviation
Wait I thought BMI went bust Wait What
nathan roper
Wow makes you wonder how they do it it's amazing
You guys certainly got hit hard! Awesome video. The Aer Lingus ATR was particularly spectacular!
M Clare
My arseholes going like a rabbits nose...
14:00 great job by the pilots!
Great video - thanks for sharing!
God, despise having to fly anywhere! This is just more fuel to the fire!
Emily Yamada
now thay is rudder deflection if ive ever seen it
Going viral mate, heard this on the radio and other facebook pages around the world
Paul Fisher
wow good footage i find planes so fascinating taking of and landing .
Khadijah Brown
Perhaps no flying but high speed rail?
Jonathan Anderson
An excellent video. And some highly skilled pilots.wether they went around or not
Bartacomus Kidd
Is Ryan air the same company that build the sprit of st louis?
Daisy Rothschild
UNflippin' believable! Was only going to watch one... realized 10 minutes in I'd forgotten to breathe...
Terrific flying and a tribute to the skill and training of the flight crew. Well done Ryanair and EasyJet pilots. Though we all know that landings in challenging conditions are what you really love about the job. The landing of the biz jet was very neat too
Robert VanZant
Lots of changes of underwear needed !!! Some impressive landings they earned there money that day .
Malcolm Gough
The pilots all earn there money yesterday.
Alexa play Running in the 90's
Fred Hacker
It looks so easy in an Easyjet . Congratulations to all those very skilful pilots
Impressive always gotta tip your hat to the training and professionalism of those pilots that can do this in the most challenging of conditions
Chris Bristol
Very smooth landings - in spite of the conditions.
