A plane has manoeuvred its way through three tornadoes hovering over the Black Sea, as it came in to land at a Russian airport. 

Reports suggest the pilot wasn't properly informed about the twisters ahead, all of which were at an alarmingly close distance to one another. 

This comes after RT reported a second week of bizarre weather in the Sochi area, with up to 12 twisters spotted in the landlocked sea earlier that day. 

Witnesses have taken to social media to share photos and video footage of the tornado-dodging plane. 

The turbulent weather conditions have resulted in the delay of nine flights, while many more have been diverted from the Sochi area.
