Terrifying moment plane aborts landing in Prague and narrowly avoids crashing as its wheels graze the runway
A terrifying video of a Boeing aircraft aborting its landing was captured in Prague as the plane went up against some very strong cross winds while trying to land (top left). Videographer, Radko Nasinec, captured the cringe-worthy footage of the Boeing 737-430 (bottom left) narrowly avoiding a crash as its wheels grazed the runway. The video, which was shot at the Václav Havel Airport in Prague, Czech Republic, shows the airplane swaying back and forth and dipping to the right (top right) as it was attempting its first landing. The pilot was forced to pull up (bottom right) quickly because of the large gusts of wind that caused it to sway violently back and forth. The pilot then reascended and flew the plane back into the holding pattern in preparation for the second landing. During the second attempt to land, the plane once again swayed back and forth on its way down, but this time the pilot was able to make a safe landing.

Photographer Lee Chapman captured the quirky photo series which documents the lives of Tokyo's elderly away from the city's well known and modern entertainment districts. He met a 93-year-old who still opens her bar every night. Sips on sake every night. And is intent on keeping it that way until she physically can't. Mr Chapman also snapped an elderly trio enjoying a hot tub (inset) after diving for shellfish, a Japanese man who resists conforming by painting a moustache and eyebrows onto his aged face and many other lively nonagenarians, such as this woman (main) who made her way speedily through Tokyo's busy Shinjuku district despite being bent double.
