    Turboprop pilots landing at Düsseldorf Airport were in for a challenge Thursday as storm Friederike's wrath triggered aggressive crosswinds.

    According to the videographer and YouTuber Cargospotter, Friederike's wind gusts picked up to 70 knots (80mph) as the medium-range airliners struggled to land. Despite this, the skilled pilots took their time as to not rush the landing — with some even reapproaching the runway three times before successfully touching down.

    Who's taking the train next time?
