Video: Air France A340 Aborts Landing at St. Maarten During Hurricane Issac

Hurricane Issac is currently hitting the US, but a bit earlier, it hit Saint Maarten, which is a well known airline spotting site. This video, taken yesterday, shows an Air France Airbus A340 trying to land, but deciding to go around.

No worries, the plane ended up landing safely, with a round of applause.

Tip of the hat to @JustinTPA for this one.
