    ...Plane-spotter Trevor Nash who took the snaps told the newspaper: “I was sure it was going to crash. It would have headed towards the terminal, but the skill of the pilot saved the day.

    “He rolled to the left, then there was this huge wind and he flipped over to the right. The wing was only 6ft off the ground. If it had hit, it would have been a disaster.”

    I can safely say that this one is in the hangar back at base for landing gear inspections.
