"A plane landed and it disappeared into a cloud of snow," Twitter user Joseph Frascati tweeted with the video footage.

The 20 seconds video shows the ground covered with heavy snow, and the plane approaching the runway, touching down, then becoming wrapped in kicked-up snow. Due to friction of the wheels, the snow disguised as floating clouds of powder; making plane disappear from the sight. The passengers were also stunned by the scene for a few moments.
