EXTREME WET WEATHER | Heavy Aircraft Landing & Taking off during Melbourne’s SUPER STORMS – Amsterdam Video

published: 2017-12-02 13:14:45

Featuring: A330s, A380s, B747s, B767s, B777s & B787s!

For the last couple of days, the whole of Victoria has been hit with some nasty storms. With emergency SMS’s going around, floodings and even fatal injuries being inflicted by lightning strikes. Experts have deemed this massive that is still hovering around us as a “super storm” and aren’t expecting the weather to improve until after the weekend.

Featured in this film are some of the various morning heavy aircraft tackling the tricky conditions onto runway 16 earlier this morning (Saturday the second of December 2016). Within the first few clips, you’re able to hear the thunder of one of the storms that had just passed. From there on, it rained for hours without stopping.

This morning saw a few interesting movements. The main one being Qantas Freight’s sole 767 arriving from Tokyo and also Hainan Airlines A330-300 which temporarily replaced the regular A330-200.

Without further ado, I hope you enjoy these heavy aircraft tacking the 2017 Melbourne super storm!

  10. Now that’s what I call Wet ‘n’ Wild!

  12. The storming weather really doesn't make a difference it makes it look better in a way! Amazing video mate as usual!

  13. Very nice video during the rainy weather! Very smooth camera work! Absolutely perfect! Liked!

  14. A wet day at the office, but absolutely awesome camera work. I don't know who gets more enjoyment, you or your subscribers. Loved the Emirates 777, and then to see their A380 land in the haze was amazing. Cheers mate, & thank you !!

  15. Impressive footage in these dramatic conditions, nicely done! Been busy myself these last couple of days 😉

  16. Great vid mate I don’t know someone who would plane spot in Heavy Rain but you

  17. Awesome work! The footage came out great despite challenging conditions! Also a big fan of the new spot you've found!!!

  18. Love the moodiness of the video. Poor weather and visibility adds a certain other worldliness to the images. The Emirates A380 landing in low vis conditions was really cool.
    Also, inquiring minds want to know – How do you manage to keep you and the camera, dry? I've done a bit of the foul weather photoing at LAX, but have to make a dash back to the car, if the moisture gets to be a bit much. Filming in foggy conditions, one is less likely to come in wet.
    Really liked the SAL 777 turning off the active. I gather all runways were an active in the filming?
    Cheers on your continuous great filming.

  19. Credit to the pilots,
    The skill required to bring 300 odd people to safety is extreme.
    Standing ovation
