SPAIN : VIDEO: Skillful Pilots Surf Scary Winds In Bilbao.

    TO SEE :38 Video, no ad.

      Another reason to never question why many commercial pilots get the big bucks.
      In Bilbao...with winds gusting up to 40 mph...blowing aircraft around like leaves swirling in the wind...some pilots skillfully landed their planes...while others wisely decided to abort...and try again.
     But...the airport stubbornly remained open.
     It's graphic explanation about why take-offs and landings are the most dangerous times to be inside a plane...and why planes need more than just auto-pilot and GPS.
