Take-off fail as 747 jet blows in the wind; PASSENGERS will be thankful they weren't on board this plane!

Amazing footage captures the moment a 747 jet is blown off the ground in extreme wind conditions.

Watch the video above

Luckily the jet wasn’t operating a passenger flight but instead was sitting decommissioned without the weight of its engines in a plane boneyard in Mojave, California.

The footage, which was taken on May 23, shows the front of the tail heavy jet lifting up and down like a seesaw and rotating as winds of up to 113km/h struck the area.

It had rotated about 45 degrees from its original position by the next day.
