Escape from death

Hurricane "Emma" caused millions of euros in damage across Europe over the last weekend and caused the deaths of at least 13 people.

The above images are of a Lufthansa Airbus 320 with 137 passengers, which suffered a near crash last Saturday afternoon. It was about to land in Hamburg airport when a sudden gust of wind from Hurricane 'Emma' lifted the right side of the airliner, making the left wing barely miss the ground at a speed of 250 km/h. The pilot with a quick reflex added power to the engines before it was too late and the airplane regained altitude again. He succeeded to land with calm in the second attempt.
