  1. Flybe flight 1274 Amsterdam-Manchester made an emergency landing at Birmingham Airport on 29th August 2016 after one of the tyres on the Dash-8 aircraft was discovered to have burst. In the video enlargement after the normal video the tyre can be seen shredding and baring the wheel rim. ______________________________________________________________________________ To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email licensing@storyful.comSOURCE
  2. Missed approaches by a Qatar Dreamliner and a Flybe Embraer plus an aborted landing by an Aer Lingus A320 are not what you usually expect in summer in the UK, even at BHX.SOURCE
  3. Frequent rain storms this summer has meant plenty of opportunity to catch these giants departing soaked runways. At about 130 tonnes, the Airbus A380 has the highest total jet thrust of any production plane, whilst the Boeing 777-300 has the most concentrated thrust due to it having the biggest available engines, each producing a barrage of around 52 tonnes.

  4. A little lady at Birmingham Airport showing all-body control of the whims of the wind which aircraft designers can only dream about.SOURCE
  5. How mighty jets slow down by blasting jet thrust through outlets in the engine sides, often creating spectacular spray storms on a wet runway. Here are some zoomed-in shots of the process at work, courtesy Pakistan International, Ryanair, Emirates, Air France and Air Transat.SOURCE
  6. Plenty of weathercocking in this twin video to Turbulent Touchdowns (https://youtu.be/Vtyq-8fdCsY), shot mainly in winter 2015/16 in the invariably variable wind conditions at BHX.SOURCE
  7. The world's largest production aircraft needs a lot of wheels to support its max takeoff and landing weights of around 600 tonnes and 400 tonnes respectively. It's almost like visual music watching the complex movements of the undercarriage/landing gear as it neatly folds away or absorbs huge landing punishment. ___________________________________________________________________________________ To use this video in a commercial player or in broadcasts, please email licensing@storyful.comSOURCE
  8. The last week in March 2016 saw the start of the daily Emirates Airbus A380 and Qatar 787 services to Birmingham Airport, but also saw a wave of diversions from storm-hit Heathrow, including British Airways 747's and 777 and brightly-painted South African A340.SOURCE
  9. Selected (attempted) landings at BHX this winter on the more difficult days for the pilots. As usual, the problems mainly come not from the wind speed and direction but sudden changes in these. A couple of the shots are actually from 2014 but emphasize the bumpiness of the approach over the City at times. The pilot of one of the landings here kindly made the following comment: "The thing that makes BHX stand out from most other windy airports is the fact that the gusty, turbulent winds seem to persist all the way down to the runway. In most airports, the air seems to be a bit calmer once you enter the ground effect during the flare, but not in BHX. I'm not sure if this is caused by a lack of trees or some other specific terrain features in the area, but it makes the landings there quite a bit more interesting. These landings might look scary from the outside and trust me, it's a lot more challenging and stressful than landing in CAVOK wind calm conditions, but it's also the most fun you can have as a pilot."SOURCE
