This is the terrifying moment a passenger plane aborts a landing just yards off the runway at Manchester Airport in extreme winds. As the Airbus A320 prepares to touch down, the footage shows the plane being hit by a fierce crosswind and blown violently to the left. The captain immediately pulls up and climbs the aircraft.
