Plane spotters managed to capture the moment a tiny plane made a brave landing amid high winds in Germany.

The Eurowings pilot was coming into Dusseldorf from Bologna in winds of up to 68mph.

If you’re scared of flying, you might want to look away now.

The deadly storm killed eight people across Western Europe, with the Netherlands and Germany facing the brunt of the bad weather.

In the dramatic footage, the aeroplane is thrown around during the final part of its landing, and approaches the runway at a disturbing angle.

The plane, a Bombardier Dash 8, seats 78 passengers.

Even if you’re not the type to clap after the plane lands, this pilot probably did deserve a round of applause.
