Just metres from touch down, the plane’s right wing drops leaving it awkwardly trying to get the wheels down.

However, the pilot aborts the landing during the procedure – pulling the plane back up into the skies.

The aircraft bounced on the runway before ascending back into the sky.

The plane was said to have instead flown back to Frankfurt, Germany, where it had come from.

According to the Aviation Herald , a gust of wind caught the aircraft and caused the right wing to drop.

Surface winds had come from from 270 degrees at 26 knots gusting 46 knots, the website said.

“The Enter Air, after ATC had coordinated the return to Frankfurt, returned to Frankfurt, where the aircraft landed without further incident about 70 minutes after the go around,” the website said.

The plane for the Polish airline remained on the ground in Frankfurt for three hours before later flying to Berlin, it was reported.
