WATCH: Passengers scream as plane slams down onto ground

Terrified Ryanair passengers have filmed the moment their plane hits the tarmac with a thud.

The plane landed so violently that people on board "feared the landing gear would snap", the Mirror reports.

The plane was flying from Fuerteventure in Spain on Friday.

The footage shows the plane coming in to land at Leeds Bradford airport and it ends with the person filming being hurled forward by the force of the iimpact.

Plane passengers can be heard screaming as the plane lands with a thud.

Other passengers are heard screaming and shouting in the video.

The passenger said he felt as though the aircraft "fell out of the sky" onto the runway.

He added: "I have flown for many years, and this has had to be the first landing where I have thought the main gear was going to collapse".

No one was injured in the landing.

A spokesman for Ryanair said: "The aircraft experienced cross winds on approach to Leeds Bradford airport and landed normally and safely."
