On November 20, 2016, a powerful storm hit the English Channel, causing hurricane force winds in Belgium. I was onboard this British Airways Airbus A320 flight, which tried to land at the height of the storm. It was the scariest landing in my life. Have you ever experienced a scary moment on a plane?

Nothing is scarier than when your plane experienced a sudden micro burst 30000 ft in the air in stormy weather.

One time I was flying on Singapore airlines from Manchester Airport to Texas Houston, and in the middle of the flight over the Atlantic Ocean we hit some terrible, I mean terrible turbulence. It was so bad many people around me started to scream and cry! Although, I knew it would be all ok I was panicking like mad! I think the plane dropped a few hundred feet as well because there was a HUGE drop in the turbulence!

I was on a plane to Cuba, the winds were bad and I thought the plane was going down. I collapsed when we landed. My legs went jelly . I had to buy medication for the return flight to knock me out. I was so scared.

I bet the Pilots were covered in sweat.It looks like they had their hands full.This past summer I was coming back from New York City.As we got close to Savannah the pilots came on and said we could not land in Savannah due to a Bad Thunderstorm.He said we were going to circle the airport.There were 4 other planes doing the same thing.Than in a few minutes the Captain came back and said if we cannot land in 30 minutes we would have to fly to Augusta.So we were doing circles.There was so much pressure on the plane that you could see the walls moving.The plane cracked and groaned.I had 2 Gulf Stream Pilots sitting beside.They had a very worried on their face.That is when I asked them what they thought. They leaned over to me and said the plane should not be making these noises.And that the storm system had exellmy low pressure system.They said it was highly usual not to land in a plane in a storm.They then started texting people.I was like Ok today my day to die.It got to 30 minutes the Captain came on and said they had approval to land.He said thank goodness the plane was under stress and we would have to fly to get out of it.As we departed the plane the Captain was standing outside of the cockpit soaking wet with sweat.He shook everyone hands and thanked us.I looked at him and said worse you have ever seen,.he said yes.He said the pressure was so low and it made the plane a nightmare to fly.I told him I watch the walls move back and forth.he said trust me I heard them.It was a monster storm that hit.Lots of damage on the ground had 2 tornado hit close by.

I remember one time on our landing I was sitting near the window and as we landed I seen the right wing dip and almost hit the ground! It was about foot or two from the ground scared the crap out of me! But that was not the worst one. I was in a 4 seater plane when the pilot put that plane in a nose dive!! Even though he was a friend of mine and did it on purpose it still scared the crap out of me more like my lunch. I was so sick I had an upset stomach for three days!

I missed the scary part. Don't ever go up in a Cessna single engine, Icon A5, hell any small single engine plane if you thought that was scary. Those birds are like riding in a Cadillac compared to a Cessna. By the way Go Arounds are normal, happens all the time.

The airport near my house is notorious for go-arounds in the winter, because the runway is so icy. My coworker coming back from a business trip one time had the plane try FIVE TIMES, backing off last second each time before turning around and going back to Chicago, where the flight originated, because of the combination of snow, wind, and ice on the runway. The airline then put everyone on a bus and sent them back up via a 9 hour bus ride.

Turbulent...sure. At some point the aircraft exceeded the stable approach criteria and the flight crew did what was needed- a go around. It ended well so hats off to the crew. Thanks for the video.

I was on an SAA flight from Durban to Joburg. All fine til we get to Jozi. Come down very low nearly about to land then do a go around. But f%$king steep! And at such an angle to the right that my head and body were leaning into the empty seat next to me and the bloke in the next seat had his head and body in the aisle at a near lie down position. I looked at the flight attendant for reassurance thinking hes probably been through this tons of times before so he'll be calm and that will make me feel better. Haha no! Guys jaw was clenched and his knuckles were bone white which was scary because he was a black dude. Long story short.... as we came in to land there was a plane on the runway that shouldn't have been there hence the go around. I've never sweated so much in my life. I got off the plane, went to the nearest bathroom and cried for a solid 10 min. Called my husband in tears because I didnt want to get onto my next flight in an hours time. Pretty funny now but not so at the time😂

Well you’ve must of been some pretty nice flights because that was nothing lol just a go around and tiny bit of turbulence
Christopher Pericolosi
I used to be a flight attendant and the scariest landing for me was a run from STL to ORD, the weather was absolutely frightening, the entire hours flight was frought with turbulence, so much so that we couldnt even get drinks out. Upon landing approach, the plane (a 717) dipped to the left, almost grazing the ground. People screamed, babies cried, old people farted. It was terrible!!! Longest cleanup ive ever performed!!!!

I’d say the scariest time I’ve been on a plane was in MCO (orlando) arriving at DTW (Detroit). So we were about to clear for takeoff but then all of a sudden they just bring the plane back to the gate, and then the pilots make an announcement saying “Orlando is currently under a ground stop right now due to the weather here” (basically a ground stop is when any flights are not allowed to depart or and flights coming into the area were not allowed to land because mostly of weather issues) so then like 30 minutes later the weather gets worse. The clouds are dark grey and were almost black. So they were planned to fly out east into the Atlantic Ocean to escape the thunderstorm rolling in, but the scariest thing was the takeoff. First as soon as it started, the plane started shaking up and down over and over and it scared the living he*l out of me, then the plane is getting into the air, it’s still shaking, and when I looked out the window, it looked like the plane was gonna come back down and crash because it didn’t look like it would make it up in the air as much. But as soon as we make it to Detroit like 2 hours late (Landing at about 4PM EST) the weather was beautiful. 80 degrees and sunny skies. Home sweet home.

Yes we took off from Tunisia in a sand storm we had three abandoned take offs we turned around and took off on the fourth attempt the whole plane shook it was terrifying ! My husband refused to fly again the following year I got him a days course at Manchester airport fly with confidence course and yes I was very surprised we booked a holiday he wasn’t happy he refused to eat and drink from Manchester to Cyprus but coming home he was fine and no issues since ! But I love to fly and do internal hops from Manchester to London but that day in Tunisia I thought we were going to die , I never told him I was just as terrified ! It was just awful

Once flying on a 747 from Montreal to London the plane's hydraulics failed right after take off and they had to dump fuel and make an emergency landing back at the airport and there were no air brakes so we came in super hard and fast. Quite a scary experience and it happened on a night flight which always seems to make that stuff worse.
