We have talked about risk management before and shown you images about the near crashes by the SAS Dash 8 Q400 planes manufactured by Bombardier here:

SAS risk management – after 2 crashes we expected proper risk assessment but got another crash-landing instead (UPDATE 1)

Last weekend Northern Europe was experiencing a low pressure system that caused strong winds. The storm, dubbed “Emma,” caused millions of euros in damage across Europe. It caused the deaths of at least 13 people.

Saturday an A320 from Lufthansa had a rough time trying to land at Hamburg-Airport.

See the video and some text right here:

Incidentally, the footage shown with the above link is unlikely to make it into any commercials for Lufthansa.
