Video: British Airways A321neo hits tail during landing

LONDON, UKThe tail of a British Airways Airbus A321 hit the runway during a wild landing in London.



The British Airways flight BA1307 was touching down at Heathrow Airport when the incident happened. The BA jet, arriving from Aberdeen at around 10.50 am on Monday, had to pull out because of strong winds affecting flights at the UK's largest airport.

The plane's right wing then lifted and the jet briefly moved along the runway at an angle with its left set of wheels on the ground.

"Our pilots are highly trained to deal with a range of scenarios, including extreme weather conditions," British Airways said on Tuesday.

"Our crew landed the plane safely. All passengers and crew disembarked as usual," the airline added.
