A plane landed exceptionally at Heathrow Airport after struggling with Storm Dennis' headwind in the UK.
Video footage shows the pilot's maneuver when the Etihad Airbus A380 plane hovered sideways over the runway before successfully landing at the airport on Saturday, a British media report said.
The incident happened when hundreds of flights to and from the UK were canceled due to Storm Dennis on Saturday and easyJet canceled more than 230 flights.
The storm, the second in so many weeks in Britain, triggered strong winds and heavy rain at the weekend.

In some parts of the UK, more than a month of rain fell in just two days, causing the Environment Agency (EA) to issue a record number of flood warnings and warnings for England.
John Curtin, Executive Director of EA's Flood and Coastal Risk Management, said Sunday that the 594 warnings and warnings were a record.
In parts of Wales, more than a month of precipitation fell in 48 hours from Friday to Sunday morning.
The Met Office reported that 156.2 mm of rain had fallen at Crai Reservoir in Powys, Wales during this period, well above the average monthly rainfall in Wales of 111.1 mm in February.
The village of Nantgarw, Rhondda Cynon Taff near Cardiff, is among the worst affected in Britain.
Mason said the weather was "unprecedented" and added that he had "never seen anything like it".
British Red Cross Crisis Officer Georgie Timmins said: "The storms are expected to continue and the water to peak at Monday and Tuesday. It is important that people are ready should the worst happen."
