British Airways flight buffeted by strong winds – VIDEO

British Airways flight was forced to divert from its planned course after encountering strong gusts off the coast of southern Europe yesterday.

Flight BA492 was scheduled to take off from London Heathrow airport at 8:25 a.m. and land in the British overseas territory of Gibraltar at 12:20 p.m.
