don't watch this after eating

If you’ve ever been on a flight that tries to loft or land in gusty crosswinds, you know how white-knuckle it can be.

The Atlantic posted a great video today of 

“what an autopilot could never do.”

No kidding.

Shot last winter at the Birmingham, England Airport, these take-off’s, landings and last second ditch-and-aborts are in turbulence nightmares are made of.

It’s upsetting. But impressive. And just terrifying. 

Here’s a spoiler, they all make it up or down safely.

 Sometimes just barely. 

But it is all in a day's work for the pilots.

The very best kind of time waster.
