He made constant adjustments and his co-pilot monitored the equipment as he kept his eyes on the runway as he arrived at Heathrow Airport.

Former Formula One World Champion Damon Hill said: “It commands respect.”

The wind speed at the airport reached 70 mph yesterday, the fastest wind speed in the UK was 122 mph.

During yesterday’s storm, more than 200,000 people filmed the YouTube channel as the plane tried to land at its peak, and a total of 6 million people watched.

Big Jet TV host Jeremy Diver said: “It’s great when you come back from something like this, especially when there’s a lot of drama, when you see people on different platforms. “I was too scared to fly,” he said.

“But after seeing the cockpit skills on display,” he says, “I feel a lot more confident because I have full confidence in the pilots.”

Hundreds of flights were canceled at Heathrow and Gatwick airports on Friday. An easy jet flight from Bordeaux endured two canceled landings at Gatwick before being forced to return to the French city.

Airports across the UK have warned passengers to check their flights and arrive early if they are on their way.

This comes at a time when the British are facing another onslaught with extreme weather to prevent a £ 500 million cleanup from Hurricane Younis.

Hurricane Younes entered the UK on Friday morning when the Met Office issued a rare “life-threatening” red warning.

Winds of 122 miles per hour have been temporarily recorded on Needles on the Isle of Wight, the highest recorded in England.

The previous record was 118 miles per hour in 1979 at Gwynephead in Cornwall.

In the footage, the captured planes are struggling to land in strong winds, the roof of the O2 Arena in London has been damaged, and the spire of St. Thomas Church in Somerset, Wales, is hitting the ground.

In Croydon, stunning footage shows pedestrians kicking their feet.

A portion of the O2 roof in London was also torn down, with staff warning that the venue could be closed for months.

Power lines were also torn down and roofs blown off as thousands of people were affected by the power outage.

Employees say O2 could be closed for months after Hurricane Younis uprooted its roof.
