Pilot Manages Unbelievable Landing After Wind Tips Plane Toward the Ground Just Feet Above the Runway

Near crash barely averted

High winds and driving rain tossed this propeller plane into a near nose-dive mere feet above the runway, but somehow the pilot was able to recover and land safely.

Newsflare told TheBlaze the incredible video was filmed Sunday on the island of Flores in the Azores.

"The commercial flight was a propeller-driven Bombardier Q400 approaching Flores airport when it is buffeted by wind," a Newsflare spokesman said.

The video shows the aircraft swaying and bouncing wildly several times above and on the runway before finally touching down.

There were no reports of any injuries, which makes watching this footage a little easier:
