The Lufthansa flight LH44 from Munich experienced wingstrike while landing at Hamburg on 1 March 2008 during Emma storm. My husband who has his pilot’s license said, “Those are some major crosswinds. That is one skillful pilot!” Nobody was injured; the plane landed using another runway. Coming off my “Washington State to NYC and back in 24 hours” marathon, this film makes me shudder.
