German plane about to take off freezes on runway in wild footage

A German airport has ground to a halt (pun intended) as a plane freezes to the runway as it tries to take off.

A snowstorm brought Munich airport to a standstill – and the footage is pretty wild.

While we’ve seen remarkable footage of planes taking off before – this is next level.

Flights were cancelled at the airport over the weekend after a winter storm dumped snow across the south of the country.

Parts of Austria, Switzerland and the Czech Republic were also affected by weather-related delays and cancellations.

A video of the plane sitting motionless in the snow amid an apparent rescue was shared to X.

Watch the footage of the Cessna plane tipped back and frozen to the runway below:
