Woooahhh !

Lufthansa Airbus with 130 passengers in high crosswinds at Hamburg on the weekend.

Gleaned from the Youtube comments : There are two runways, 05/23 and 15/33 at Hamburg at 90% to each other - one has ILS and the other doesn't. The control tower only offered the ILS runway 23. After the near-miss the plane landed safely into the wind on the other runway.

The planespotters comments translated :

Ohhh, this nearly went wrong!
-You know what I believe? ..they'll stop those landings here soon (
i.e. on this runway - LT).
- I think so too.
-Have you seen that? I think the wing touched the bottom.
- Looked like..
