Shocking footage shows a British Airways flight struggling against strong winds in Gibraltar.

Richard Whalley was in his apartment when he captured the plane rocking from side to side in the clear skies on February 25.

Passengers onboard the flight from London Heathrow had to be flown to Malaga, Spain, after heavy gales buffeted the plane. 

British Airways say there were no risk to passengers and arranged transport for travellers affected.  

A British Airways spokesman said: “The flight has landed safely and passengers have left the aircraft normally.

“Due to strong winds in the Gibraltar area, our pilots decided to land in Malaga as a precaution.

“The safety of our customers and crew is always our number one priority.”
