Passengers on a British Airways flight experienced something from a ride on American roller coasters on Monday, when strong winds made planes sharply shake when he was trying to land.
A flight from London to Gibraltar International Airport was sent to neighboring Malaga, Spain, where it safely landed, local media reported British Airways.
"When we approached the Rock, I did not see any clouds, but the flight sank a bit, and suddenly everything turned out to be out of control," said Passenger Ramesh Samtani to the Gibraltar Chronicle, adding:
] "The plane jumped to the left right, and everything you heard, screamed and shouted. It was very scary and people were shouting "Oh my God" and prayed. "
Another passenger said that he was afraid for his life.
" I spoke my last prayers, "said the passenger Eli Hassett of the BBC, "I thought about my children and my wife."
Nevertheless, the passenger, Crisis Bubnelis, offered a much calmer picture of the scene on board the aircraft and the frames to support it.
"There was no cry, there were no cries," ̵
"Being where we are, we see many landings, but never as rude as that," said the Chronicle, a man who shot frames and I do not want to be named. "I'm glad I was not on it!"
Gibraltar regularly makes lists of airports that can give passengers extra thrills. Along with strong winds, the airport is known for the highway that shares its runway. and must be closed for each aircraft. However, the airport said that Internet articles that called it "dangerous" were exaggerated.
"Landing in Gibraltar is no different or more risky than landing at any other airport," said the airport website, adding that the limited amount of flights made it safer than many other international airports.
There is also a plan for the usual strong winds, as well as for low visibility conditions that were used in this case: airplanes were distracted at Malaga airport and passengers were sent to Gibraltar via bus.
