a380


I have experienced something similar, long time ago, in the 1970s, coming in for a landing in New Delhi on a Boeing 747. Seated at a window seat. Looking down. Coming down quite nicely. Could see the runway below us. Not that far down. Maybe 30 to 50 feet. Next second no runway. Just green grass! We had been pushed sideways. Immediately a HUGE roar. Captain gunned the engines, which are already at ‘normal’ power for just such eventuality (and you can hear/feel that in the above video), pulled the plane up and we went around … Exciting.

Still can see it in my mind’s eye. The runway just sliding away to green grass.
