These days, hurricane Ophelia hit Scotland. Strong winds of over 150 km / h were recorded. Activities in the UK, including air services, were disrupted.
Violent landing in Dublin
A footage posted by Seán Hassett shows us an Aer Lingus aircraft in full landing process in Dublin. The strong shear wind caused the aircraft to swing strongly before touchdown.

This is an Aer Lingus plane operating flight EI491 (Faro - Dublin). Seán Hassett was worried about his parents, who were on that plane. Although it was a hard landing, no one needed medical attention, and the aircraft was not damaged.
