A pilot attempting to land a Boeing 777 airplane in Birmingham, England, on Thursday was forced to abort because of extremely high winds. The Emirates jet was trying to land at Birmingham Airport from Dubai. The video below shows the pilot’s first missed approach. He also missed the second and then diverted to London Gatwick.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
