I have just watched an item on breakfast television news about high winds at Bilbao airport, Spain!

We were treated to watching planes "swaying wildly in the wind", "hovering inches above the runway" and "not risking landing at all"!!  I have to say as a "recovering fearful flyer" I was really proud of myself - I had to say out loud (although there was no one else in the room with me!) "that's rubbish!" - I saw plane after plane landing safely, granted not prettily but SAFELY, flown with skill and professionalism!  One plane that did decide to abort - well that was the Captain's decision and if he didn't feel circumstances were right for a safe landing - well done to him/her!!  Media making something out of nothing as usual!!!!
