  1. Apparently there was a Hurricane or storm on Thursday affecting many landings at DUS Düsseldorf airport in Germany: “Storm/Hurricane Friederike with up to 63 Knots Crosswind and 20 go arounds”.
    This youtube link has seemingly endless attempted landings from the storm:
    Only the Emirates Airbus 380 made it look easy.
    All of the other pilots need to be promoted to the next grade up in aircraft. I would fly with them any day.

  2. The headline about BA is somewhat misleading. The simply use of the word “Government” suggests the UK government which would be more newsworthy than the Ghanaian one to be blunt.
