A viral video shows the terrifying moment a plane flies through three tornadoes during a dangerous weather storm. Filmed in Sochi, Russia, witnesses spotted the plane weaving through the twisters in succession as it attempted to land. It was reported that 12 waterspouts were spotted over the Black Sea that same day. They are all part of the bizarre weather to hit the region this week.

Several more were captured off the coast, with one local newspaper reporting nearly 12 formations over the Black Sea. For a plane, the tornadoes can be extremely disruptive to flying. Their unpredictable nature can increase the possibility of severe turbulence.

Many of the people watching on the ground took pictures of the heart-stopping moment. The pilot, however, appeared to go through them all with ease as it passed over the sea. According to Sochi Express, nine flights were forced to divert due to the scary weather conditions. Whilst the odd storms have entered the country, those in Sochi can expect temperatures of up to 30 degrees by this weekend.

The same tornadoes were also photographed by eyewitnesses arriving by air to the city’s airport:
