ENGLAND (CBSDFW.COM) - They say don't fool with Mother Nature, but all this pilot wanted to do was land a passenger jet at a major airport!

The Airbus A321 was trying the land at Birmingham Airport in Solihull, England.

The first attempt was a no go. The crosswinds seemed to get stronger as the plane floated down closer tho the runway. The pilot aborted the landing.

After going around for a second try the pilot still had to fight the wind, landed safely onthe second attempt.
