Passenger Films Moment Plane Lands So Hard He Feared 'Landing Gear Would Snap'

Passenger Films Moment Plane Lands So Hard He Feared 'Landing Gear Would Snap'

Footage posted online shows the moment passengers were thrown forward in their seats when an aeroplane landed at a British airport.

The video, recorded on a mobile phone, shows the Ryanair plane as it makes descent towards the runway at Leeds Bradford Airport.

However, as soon as the the Boeing 737-800 aircraft's wheels touch down, they bounce off the tarmac and the plane jolts launching screaming holidaymakers forward.

Watch it here:

The aircraft was travelling from Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands on Friday.

The clip was filmed by a man named Craig who described the ordeal as a 'frightening experience' with '15kt winds landing on Runway 32'.

Posting the video to YouTube he wrote: "Pilot was fighting to keep control of the aircraft and not too sure if he came in to quick and too high thus having to force the aircraft down into the tarmac, or if he was too slow, lost lift and resulted in the aircraft 'falling' out of the sky. Difficult to say without knowing speed or height.

"Once on tarmac, the pilot fought to regain control of the aircraft, and we were thrown from left to right trying to straighten up.

"I have flown for many years, and this has had to be the first landing where I have thought the main gear was going to collapse."

A spokesman for Ryanair told the Daily Mail: "The aircraft experienced cross winds on approach to Leeds Bradford airport and landed normally and safely.

"They landed safely and there was never any danger of the landing gear collapsing. This is a false, misleading and sensationalist claim."
