Despite this, on Monday, December 19, two planes managed to land on the island of Flores.
One of the landings was recorded by a person living on the island and shared on her Facebook page.
The video shows a plane “fighting” to land against very strong winds. The impressive video has so far racked up over 87,000 views and according to NM, the flight in the video landed safely without anyone being injured.
