It's been rather windy here in Europe over the past few days, and some kind person has sent the BBC footage of a Lufthansa jet trying to land at Hamburg in the high winds. Did I mention I was a rather nervous airline passenger? From what I can gather, the hero pilot brought the plane around and landed it on the next try. If that ever happens to a plane I'm on, I'll have to be taken off in a straitjacket.

When you finally come visit you and I are going to ride my favourite roller coaster! It's just a short hop down the turnpike.

If you look very closely, you can see that the tip of that wing actually grazed the runway. It was that much fun...
According to the Telegraph there were `several minutes of stunned silence' when the plane finally landed. There wouldn't have been any `stunned silence' if I'd been aboard; I would still have been screaming while we waited for the luggage to come up onto the carousel.
