The Boeing 777 can carry between 314 to 451 passengers. That's a lot of stomachs being jostled as this pilot lands in the face of the worst July storm to hit Amsterdam in 100 years.

Here's the thing about planes: landing is not optional. You might prefer not to land in the worst storm to hit a particular area in a century, but unless you've got enough fuel to go to a different airport, you don't really have a choice. The storm, with gale-force winds and lashing rain, prompted the Dutch meteorological service to issue a "Code Red" warning, which I didn't even know was a thing.

In any case, this KLM 777 (KLM is the national airline of the Netherlands) pilot deserved a hearty round of applause from his reserved Dutch passengers after touching down at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport.
