VIDEO: Pilots make amazing landing in extreme wind conditions

BILBAO, Spain - High winds in Bilbao, Spain, made normally routine landings treacherous Wednesday.

Take a look at this dramatic video above. It shows passenger jets trying to land in a heavy wind storm. You can see that the winds force the plane to sway back and fourth.

Luckily, that plane was able to correct it at the last minute before it touched down.

As you can see later, another plane wasn't so lucky. It had to abort. In fact, four flights had to divert from the airport due to the weather. A number of coastal towns in Spain were also pounded by wind.
