Boeing 777 landing Birmingham: Passenger vomits while plane battles rough winds

A rough Boeing 777 landing in Birmingham caused a passenger on the plane to vomit while the Boeing 777 pilots tried desperately to maneuver the massive aircraft in gale force wind conditions. As reported by England's Birmingham Mail on Dec.6, the video next to this article shows just how bad weather conditions were when a Boeing 777 failed two landing attempts at an airport in Birmingham, England.

The plane approaching the runway lurches to the violent gusts and, at the last moment, hangs to regain altitude.

A few passengers aboard the Boeing 777 that was landing in Birmingham shed some details via Twitter shortly after the incident. Passenger Kevon Miller tweeted:

“One woman opposite me started throwing up after the 2nd attempt in landing.

“There monitors on the plane that change screens, as we tried to land, it was on the camera facing the runway."

“It was shaking hard all the way from when we got out the clouds, we was watching it on the monitors.”

"As we came towards the city, the plane was shaking on the way down. He added, “I am never flying again."

Passenger Muhammad Zulfiqar said:

“We were left watching the landing on the front camera monitor. Another engineer from Sydney was sitting next to me and we were just left wondering why the plane seemed to be veering towards the A45. When the plane started hovering back up from the landing, we thought the pilot was half-asleep and had lost control!”

The Boeing 777, which had arrived at the airport from a lengthy trip to Dubai, tried and failed two attempts to land at Birmingham Airport while heavy storms hammered the UK.

The plane approached the runway almost completely sideways and at a right angle before twice going back up in the air instead.

After two unsuccessful landing attempts, the Boeing 777 was forced to land at London’s Gatwick Airport, which is almost 100 miles away.

No injuries were reported during the dramatic Boeing 777 landing in Birmingham incident.
