Thousands Watch Scary Landings at Heathrow on YouTube Channel

A YouTube channel that livestreams planes taking off and landing from London’s main Heathrow Airport drew hundreds of thousands of viewers tuning in to watch aircraft attempt to land in wind gusts over 61 miles per hour generated by Storm Eunice.

Big Jet TV saw as many as 230,000 viewers at one point, when an Airbus SE A380 double-decker flying in from Doha by Qatar Airways made its third attempt to land. The channel, run by enthusiast Jerry Dyer, was already popular with aviation geeks, and has about 143,000 subscribers.
