AN AER LINGUS plane made a touch-and-go landing at Dublin Airport last night due to dangerous wind conditions.

The flight from Manchester was due to land yesterday at around 4.30pm.

The plane touched down briefly on the runway before taking off again and circling the area.

Although not an unusual maneuver, passengers on-board were left shocked at what happened.

Aer Lingus apologised for the any discomfort caused.
