Terrified of flying? Consider this a warning: this is a video you're probably better off not watching. Now, for the rest of you, a video of an Emirates Airbus A380 making a hard landing in Dusseldorf, Germany, amid heavy winds is viral. The video, which has been watched well over nine million times already, was filmed and posted on YouTube by "Cargospotter."

In the dramatic video, the plane can be seen wobbling in the high winds as it approaches the runway. As the pilots land the double-deck aircraft, it appears to bounce before swerving frighteningly. Though it's only a matter of seconds before the pilots are able to steady the plane, one can only imagine how terrifying the experience must have been for passengers seated inside.

"This video shows the incredible skills of the pilots. Even after an unexpected wind gust after touchdown they managed to re-align with the runway. Incredible job by the pilots," wrote the uploader on YouTube. 

"Emirates flight EK 55 on October 5, 2017 landed safely in Dusseldorf under strong crosswind conditions. At no point was the safety of the passengers and crew onboard compromised," Khaleej Times reported an Emirates spokesperson as saying.

The A380 is the world's largest passenger plane, capable of seating more than 600 passengers.

"Airplane drift. Coming soon in Fast and Furious 10," joked one person.
