    The incident was caused by Storm Erik that brought hurricane-force winds approaching 110 mph to the coasts of the United Kingdom and Ireland earlier this week.

    The video shows a British Airways plane attempting to land at Heathrow Airport in the UK capital. The pilots almost managed the feat, however, at the very last moment, a gush of stormy wind made them start it all over after a few brief seconds on the ground.
