- A plane from Abuja encountered a heavy storm at the Heathrow airport and struggled on land on Sunday, February 9
- A video posted on social media shows the plane struggling with the heavy wind as Storm Ciara berths in the UK
- The airline said the aircraft went on to land safely after circling the airport for a while
Strong winds forced a flight at Heathrow airport, London to abort its landing seconds after touching down on the runway, the BBC reports.
A video posted on social media showed the aircraft, a British Airways plane struggling to land during Storm Ciara on Sunday, February 9.
British Airways was unable to confirm the source of the flight, though it was reported on social media as coming from Abuja, Nigeria.
The airline said the aircraft went on to land safely after circling the airport for a while.
Earlier in the day, a British Airways jet is thought to have made the fastest subsonic flight from New York to London thanks to Storm Ciara.
The pilot was said to have managed to shave an improbable 102 minutes off its scheduled flight time.
Recall that last week, an Air Canada Boeing 767 flight initially headed to Toronto made an emergency landing at an airport in Madrid, Spain after part of its landing gear fell off and entered its engines.
Emergency crews were activated and prepared for any eventuality as there were 130 passengers on the flight which took off from Madrid's Adolfo Suarez-Barajas international airport.
