Watch: dramatic landing of KLM plane at Schiphol Airport

<p>This is a landing some passengers may remember for a while to come. Conversely, it may be one they will be in a hurry to forget. </p> <p>The captain battled with 120km/hour (75mph) winds as it approached the runway at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport. </p> <p>The Boeing 777-300ER plane was en route from Osaka, Japan, when it encountered difficult conditions on approach to the Netherlands capital. There were no injuries reported. </p> <p>The landing took place after the country received a code red weather warning that left many regions battered by winds. </p> <p>Drivers of vulnerable vehicles were warned to be especially careful on the roads.</p> <p>One driver lost his life in the Gelderland province, in the eastern part of the country, when a tree fell on his car, and there were reports of several injuries in different cities. </p> <p>Meteorologists said it was the most violent July storm in the Netherlands since records began in 1901.</p> <p><iframe width="600" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/02ddnGzxNZs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe><br /> <strong>Credit: YouTube/Michael Splinter</strong></p>
