A Boeing Business Jet had to abort its landing after a sudden rain storm literally made the runway invisible due to whiteout conditions.

Luckily, pilots are trained in these types of situations, and this one was recording the incident. Watch this crazy video:

According to one of the pilots who uploaded the video to YouTube, the jet had plenty of fuel on board and was able to land about 15 minutes later when the rain had passed. Still scary.
