AN EASYJET flight travelling from Alicante, Spain to Bristol Airport in England was forced to abort landing on Tuesday, December 11, due to strong gusts of wind.
The plane is seen approaching the runway but the wind evidently unbalances the aircraft forcing the pilot to pull up right at the last moment.
As Euro Weekly News understands, the plane landed safely on its second attempt.
Weather conditions not only affected EasyJet flights that day, with many that were due to leave Bristol Airport today for France, Spain and Switzerland were cancelled.
On the Bristol Airport website departures board today, several flights to cities including Paris and Bilbao in Spain have been cancelled with many others being delayed landing this morning. This is thought to be due to national strikes that have started in France and which have had an impact on airlines including EasyJet, British Airways, Ryanair and Eurostar.
