    You may not want to watch this video of a Boeing 777 landing during 75MPH winds if you ever want to fly again. I can feel my butt pucker just from the video!

    I'm curious as to why they were landing there in the first place. Aren't they supposed to re-route to a different field for bad weather?

    That is creepy to watch.
