If you’re a traveler who hates takeoffs and landings, then you definitely don’t want to be on one of these planes.

On Monday, Flugsnug posted on its YouTube channel a video that showcased a twin-engine ATR and a Dash-8 landing at Birmingham Airport (BHX), England – the seventh busiest airport in the UK. Approximately 9.7 million travelers passed through the airport in 2014.

Known for its occasional windy weather conditions, Birmingham airport has experienced reports of planes facing difficulties during takeoffs and landings. In August 2014, Turkish Airlines Boeing 737 had to abort a landing because of high winds. In December 2013, a Emirates Airline flight failed to land twice at Birmingham airport and was then diverted to Gatwick.

Aviation enthusiast, Flugsnug mainly posts aviation videos near Birmingham airport. He writes,

It’s BHXwinds (Xwinds at BHX airport) season, and the reputation of the unusually gusty ant turbulent approaches here is combined with some extra difficulty the A320 class of airliners seems to have in these conditions.

You’ll see videos showing that even huge airbuses sometimes struggle with landings there.
