Panic during landing approach
A 240-passenger Vueling aircraft landed on Saturday evening, shortly after 11pm, at the Los Rodeos airport in Tenerife with some difficulty. The aircraft had taken off from Barcelona, and during the first hour and a half the turbulent weather conditions caused a rocky flight. But it was worse for the passengers on the landing approach. One passenger said, "We had seen the runway lights. The aircraft swayed and suddenly the pilot used full throttle and climbed again". As soon as the aircraft was stable, the pilot explained to the passengers that strong gusts of wind had crossed the runway, making the landing impossible.
