Planes at Newcastle Airport in England were having a hard time taking off and landing due to high winds. For almost the entire day, pilots fought against huge gusts that were pushing against the various aircraft. Luckily, there were no accidents but it's still quite scary to see planes taking off at a weird angle.

Speaking of scary, jumping out of a plane with nothing but a parachute is scary enough without having to worry about mid-air collisions too. English and American soldiers were doing a jump training exercise in Sicily, Italy when two soldiers collided during a jump. Again, there were no injuries.

Off-Duty Soldier Springs Into Action & SUV Ice Skates Across Busy Road

Two passengers were trapped inside an overturned SUV when off-duty soldier Feng Jundong happened to be passing by.

The passengers survived the crash and Jundong only suffered minor cuts to his hand. Then, a dashcam captured an SUV drifting out of control on an icy road. Another car was attempting to pass a large truck, causing the SUV to swerve, almost hitting two other cars in the process. Luckily, the SUV avoided colliding with anything and everyone was able to drive away from this scary incident. View Now
Helicopter Pilot Nearly Hits Paraglider & 'Smoking' Passengers Out Of Plane

Helicopter Pilot Nearly Hits Paraglider & 'Smoking' Passengers Out Of Plane

A paraglider at an airshow in Estonia was not too happy with a local helicopter pilot. Mostly because the helicopter almost flew into him while he was still paragliding! It's not too clear how this happened, all that can be assumed for now is that there was a miscommunication. Then, a plane full of passengers in India were steaming mad, very nearly literally. What you see in the video is not smoke, it's water vapor from the humidity outside. The passengers alleged that the pilot turned up the heat to force them to deboard the plane. The airline says that's not what happened. The plane had suffered a technical glitch, which is why they wanted the passengers to deboard. View Now

Pilots Deploy Parachutes After Collision & Plane Nearly Misses Thunderstorm

It's hardly noticeable but this is the shocking moment two Mexican fighter jets slightly graze one another during aerobatic practice. They continue their course for a moment afterward before a loud boom is heard. Then the pilots can be seen in parachutes after ejecting from their seats. Thankfully no one was critically injured in the process. There is nothing scarier than turbulence and this passenger plane from Venice barely missed a horrible thunderstorm that kept all other planes at bay in Birmingham, England. The stunning thing about this video from YouTuber user flugsnug is the massive lightning strikes happening just behind the aircraft. View Now

Paraglider Takes Relaxing In The Sky To A Whole New Level

And now for your daily dose of "huh?" Paraglider Hasan Kaval has basically created a living room in the sky by fastening a couch, a TV and even a lamp to his parachute. Based on the guy's calm demeanor, you'd never guess he was soaring hundreds of feet up in the air — but then again, the level of chill required to kick back on a flying couch without a harness in the first place is probably pretty high.
