A pilot has uploaded a cockpit view of landing a plane in low visibility in Dublin Airport - with stunning results.

The video, uploaded to Youtube this week has been viewed over 110,000 times to date. The pilot demonstrates his thoughts while flying the aircraft in what's called a 'low ops autopilot' scenario, with demonstrative subtitles in the 7 minute epic.

Visibility is low - at one point the subtitles read 'I'm sure it's there ' as the aircraft bursts through a very low layer of clouds.

As the plane descends, it becomes more apparent how low the visibility is, with a runway appearing at a shockingly close distance. Luckily the plane and passengers arrive safely at their muggy destination.

The video is a stark reminder of the complexities of flying a plane, and how varying weather conditions can influence each landing.
