KLM plane in risky side roll landing as summer storm causes havoc in the Netherlands

A severe summer storm in the Netherlands has caused havoc at Amsterdam's Netherlands Airport delaying in and outbound flights, including this KLM B777 plane as it approached Schiphol Airport.

Posted to Youtube by 17Splinter on Saturday the description reads,"KLM B777 approach rather rough, plane rolls from left to right. Just before the runway [it] hit a dangerous roll to the right."


Reuters reports authorities warned travellers not to take to the road as gale-force winds and rain lashed the country, prompting the meteorological service to issue a "Code Red" warning.

No trains were running at Amsterdam Central Station, and trams were halted across the city. Roads were blocked by fallen trees in many places around the low-lying country.

A motorist was killed in the eastern province of Gelderland when a tree fell on his car, and there were reports of people being injured in several cities.

With gusts of up to 121 kmh in coastal regions, it was the most violent July storm in the Netherlands since records began in 1901.

In The Hague, seat of the country's government, emergency services warned that response times could be slowed because of the flood of storm-related calls.

Winds were observed to be slowing in Amsterdam by 1600 GMT, though the severe weather warning remained in effect.
