The video, which has garnered a mixed set of reactions on the social media portal, has been viewed more than 10 thousand times. A user said, "Depending on the strength of the wind the body of an aircraft + massive tailplane is enough weathercock the aircraft into the wind - early things we learn in pilot school. After all, aircraft are designed for airflow nose to tail, not side-on."
Another person wrote "It might be good to instruct to @qatarairways ramp managers to check the parking brake is ON on all their aircraft generally at the apron, and even moor them in case of high winds forecast. Everybody else does it. Get real."
