If you’re finding yourself in need of respite from the constant stream of election news, you’ve come to the right place.

In this week’s top videos, watch as a passenger with “no idea” how to fly executes a textbook landing.

Plus, with floods making an unwelcome return to parts of Queensland this week, a TikTok user has an unexpected encounter with a croc. Yikes!

We even have footage of an astonishing housing crash. Not economically speaking — we’re talking about an actual house here.

Check out the clips below. As always, if you have a video you’d like us to see for next week, tag us on social media using the hashtag #TNDVoW. We’d love to see them!

Wingin’ it

A passenger with “no idea how to fly a plane” successfully landed an aircraft this week — to the astonishment of air traffic controllers and aviation experts.

The passenger, who was flying home to his pregnant wife, was forced to take control of an aircraft when his pilot suffered a medical emergency mid-flight.

He managed to contact air traffic control, who guided him through how to fly the plane toward Boca Raton airport in Florida.

To the amazement of onlookers, the man executed a perfect landing, as seen in this clip.

Housing crash

A startling video has circulated online this week of the moment a house on stilts was swept into the ocean.

The legs of the North Carolina home, which was reportedly unoccupied, buckled under the force of the waves on Tuesday (local time).

Luckily, no one was hurt in the incident.

It was the second house to be destroyed by the unusually high tides that day, according to US National Park Service officials.

Who’s there?

The internet went into a frenzy this week when news broke that Sex Education star Ncuti Gatwa would become Doctor Who‘s 14th Time Lord.

Ncuti and co-star Aimee Lou Wood cracked a joke about news of the casting at the BAFTAs.

You can probably guess where this ‘knock knock’ joke is headed — but the punchline is funny nonetheless.

@bbc LOVE THESE TWO and this joke will ALWAYS be a classic 😂 #Bafta #iplayer ♬ original sound – BBC

Are you okay?

Tripping is every ball kid’s worst nightmare – but tennis ace Jannik Sinner made sure this unlucky ball kid was OK.

Ramsay reacts

We’re not sure if this is a genuine recipe or simply a bid to irritate top chef Gordon Ramsay.

Watch out for crocs!

This TikTok user had a horrifying encounter out in Brisbane floodwaters, but perhaps not the encounter you’d expect.

@offshorefishingbrisbane I never thought I would see a croc when I went out and looked at the flood water near my house 🐊🐊🐊 WATCH TILL THE END #fyp #croc #brisbanefloods #floods #rain ♬ original sound – OffshoreFishingBrisbane

It’s a sign!

Better call Ghostbusters — this spooky ‘cleaning in progress sign’ is officially haunted.

Sharing is caring

A pair of chimps and a hungry tortoise forged an unlikely bond.

This pet-loving baggage handler made sure this pet made it onto the plane safely.

Roly poly

Some puppers simply aren’t designed for stairs. These dogs unfortunately had to find out the hard way.

I’ve had enough!

This cat mum is happy to hand her kittens to the dog when she needs a break.
