After witnessing brave pilots land sideways at Heathrow airport, fans are swapping the BBC and ITV for a ‘man in a field’ on Big Jet TV.
Upon Storm Eunice’s arrival, millions across the United Kingdom have been ordered to stay home due to the strong winds. With the storm being described as ‘the worst in decades’, it’s not surprising that many flights in the air have been affected.
Big Jet TV have been capturing pilots landing at Heathrow and it’s fair to say fans are certainly impressed. The live footage not only shows the planes landing, but it also keeps viewers entertained with commentary from presenter Jerry Dyer. Big Jet TV is a YouTube channel that showcases live aviation content.

Taking to Twitter, one person said: “Am now totally addicted to “Big Jet TV” – a man with a camera standing in a field outside Heathrow, filming and commentating as planes try to land in the storm. ‘ARGH! Look at THAT! it’s CRABBING!’
A second user said: “Watching BA nail these landings one after the other is the most proud I’ve been to be British in a while #BigJetTv.”
A third wrote: “Just wanna be in the pub, big screen on, watching BIG JET TV with some pints.”
“HE DID IT #jetTV #qatar380,” said a fourth.
A fifth person tweeted: “Watching #JetTV from an undisclosed location 5000 km away, I can’t help thinking how the Hindenberg commentary would have sounded. “Oi! Cmon aul son! Oh they don’t like that in the cockpit! This is CRRRAAAAAZZZZY! I might need a week off after this!”

Big Jet TV presenter Jerry told BBC Radio 2: “This is the best scenario you could possibly imagine – big kudos to the pilots and the crews working at the airports, this is the most exciting stuff you could possibly get.
“Right now, these conditions with 70mph gusting winds, it’s pretty intense. And what is great is you get to see the skill of the pilot and how they manage to handle it.”
The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has ordered people to ‘stay at home’ and ‘do not take risks’.
