Strong winds shake plane and cause it to divert

A British Airways plane travelling from London was unable to land at Gibraltar International Airport due to strong winds which caused the plane to sway violently.

The pilot decided to redirect the plane to Malaga instead.

Passenger Eli Hassett told the BBC about his experience on the diverted Gibraltar flight and one eyewitness caught the plane rocking violently in the air.
