Plane Aborts Landing at Gibraltar Airport After Violently Rocking Side to Side
A British Airways flight was forced to abort landing at Gibraltar Airport on Monday, February 25, due to strong winds.
This video, filmed from the ground by Richard Whalley, shows the plane, BA Flight 492 from London, tipping from side to side midair.
A British Airways spokesperson told Euronews the plane was diverted to Malaga as a precaution due to strong winds.
Other footage taken from inside the plane shows dramatic scenes as the plane tilts from side to side.
While BA said strong winds were the reason for the aborted landing, some speculated that the waving action of the plane may have been in some way deliberate.
