We see a lot of hairy landings at TPG, but this might be the craziest. In this crazy aviation video, a crosswind almost derails a 737’s landing. The crew and passengers were surely holding their breath on this flight.

The Boeing 737-400, operated by Air Horizont, approaches the runway at Václav Havel Airport (PRG) in Prague. According to the video, the wind is blowing at a paltry 13 knots, but as the jet touches the runway at a 45-degree angle, it wobbles back and forth, and the wings look like they almost scrape the tarmac. The plane proceeds to climb again, and eventually lands safely after a second attempt at landing.
