Storm Doris: the 8 go-arounds

There was so much going on during Storm Doris on 23rd February 2017, with easily the strongest winds since I started filming planes four years ago, that I’ve had to break the footage into several parts.

This part shows the 8 “aborted landings/missed approaches” at BHX as winds gusted upto max 54 knots/62 mph.

Strictly, the Qatar Dreamliner wasn’t a “go-around” as the pilot chose not to give Birmingham a second go – understandable, as this was at the height of the storm (see the plane bucking in the turbulence as it climbed away).
