If you're a white knuckled flyer, you might not want to watch the video above.

It show a plane coming in for a landing at Birmingham Airport in the UK on Thursday. Crosswinds as high as 50 miles an hour made it tough for the pilots to land the plane. Just before touching down, the pilots aborted their landing. They eventually diverted to a London airport.

The winds are being caused by a large storm system sweeping across Europe.
