British Airways plane nearly overturned by wind while trying to land

A British Airways plane was forced to abort a landing at the Heathrow airport due to high winds and nearly overturned.

According to news reports, the jet arrived from Aberdeen at around 10:50 am on Monday but the pilot abandoned the scheduled landing as the aircraft was buffeted by strong winds caused by Storm Corrie.

Video footage showed the plane beginning a bumpy ascent before the right-wing lifts into the air, sending the aircraft careening down the runway at a dramatic angle.

"A full-on Touch and go, with a tail strike! Watch for the paint dust after contact and watch the empennage shaking as it drags," the tweet, posted by @BigJetTVLIVE, read.

The pilot then made the decision to abort, before successfully landing the plane at the second attempt.
