This video was posted on Liveleak, the date is December 11th, 2010. This is a cockpit view from an ILS approach to runway 06 in La Havana, Mexico. It's a scheduled airline flight, the airline in question is Click Mexicana. I *think* the airplane is a Fokker 100. I *know* they landed in a thunderstorm and I also *know* there's no way in hell I would have continued the approach, not with the thunder and the lightning and the strong possibility of low-level windshear and whatnot. Maybe I'm getting cowardly in my old age - I'm totally cool with that.
