Shot yesterday morning it shows a CityJet plane trying, and eventually giving up, trying to land in the high winds of Storm Barney.

YouTuber AMF captured the footage at Cork Airport as the plane battled the gusts to try and straighten up for landing on the runway.

The pilot does a superb job of keeping the plane level but eventually the angle forces them to abort the landing attempt.

Thankfully the plane landed safely and succesfully on the second attempt.

Storm Barney affected many planes, with one Ryanair flight to Shannon diverted to LIverpool after two attempted landings had to be aborted.
