Storm Dennis has been pounding the UK for the past few days, triggering flood warnings and making travel difficult.
Pilots landing at Heathrow really need to bring their A-game, as we saw with that Etihad Airways plane earlier in the week, and props to the team behind those controllers.
At this point, I would recommend that all nervous flyers return their browsers to the upright position and exit, because the video below isn’t going to put your mind at ease.
According to the Mirror, passengers on a Sunday evening Ryanair flight from Oujda, Morocco to Brussels, Belgium, experienced severe turbulence related to Storm Dennis:
In the clip, terrified passengers cling on tightly as the plane lurches from side to side while the pilots attempted to navigate through the stream of turbulent air.
Some pious travellers are even moved to prayer fearing the worst while another can be heard retching due to motion sickness.
Nothing like the sound of a good vomit on a plane to instigate terror:
If that video doesn’t work, head here.
We can laugh now, because the flight safely touched down in Brussels and no injuries were reported, but it must have been harrowing at the time.
