A Ryanair airline aircraft, on final approach landing in madeiraViolent gusts were encountered, prompting its pilot to throw caution to the wind rather than maintain the maneuver.

Wind shear is a complex phenomenon that affects wind direction, speed, and strength. It is characterized by sudden changes in the speed and direction of gusts, which pose a great risk to the safety of landing aircraft.

At Madeira Airport, located on the Portuguese island of the same name off the west coast of Africa, this phenomenon is almost constant, making flight conditions unstable and difficult, especially on final approach.

Ryanair Boeing 737 became unstable due to wind and landing was aborted in Madeira

This low-cost Ryanair Boeing 737-800 arriving from Porto Airport is attempting to land in a strong storm. The plane’s spectacular maneuver was filmed by a spotter from the YouTube channel Madeira Airport LPMA.

The unpredictable nature of this type of wind completely disrupts the pilot’s plans. Due to the low speed of the aircraft it becomes almost impossible to keep the aircraft on course.

Before reaching the runway threshold and beginning the flare phase, Captain Ryanair Sticks his landing and turns around again to begin a new attempt. It is not safe to land in these conditions, which prompted them to play the caution card.
