VIDEO Severe turbulence on the approach, with windshear of 40 kt at BHX

A very wild, wet and windy start to the day as a vicious squally band swept towards and then over and beyond BHX. Several pilots mentioned severe turbulence on the approach, with windshear of 40 knots reported.

All airport operations were suspended for around half an hour just after the shots here were taken, with landings in fact not resuming for about an hour.

On resumption the wind had passed through the crosswind phase, and the opposite runway was in use.
