Video has emerged which shows strong crosswinds at Manchester Airport making it difficult for a pilot to land an Airbus A380 plane.
Poor weather conditions, as a result of Storm Frank, had resulted in winds of up to 50mph battering the Manchester region in December 2015.

In the video the plane can be seen swaying from side to side as the pilot navigates the strong winds.
Steven Draper, representative of the British Airline Pilots' Association (BALPA) and a former pilot told the MailOnline: "Pilots are highly trained and have to use their skills day-in-day-out, so this type of crosswind landing is nothing out of the ordinary."
