Airline passengers flying from Israel to Britain fainted when the pilot twice failed to land in gale-force winds.
The pilot of the Jet2 flight to Manchester struggled against winds of up to 80mph to wrestle the plane to within seconds of landing.
But he was forced to divert to East Midlands Airport, near Leicester, 80 miles away.
Many shaken and nauseous passengers chose to take taxis, costing up to £200, rather than the coaches provided by the airline to get home.
