A reverse image search of some keyframes from the video directed us to an YouTube video by Bopbibun, titled “Most Crazy Emergency Landing By Drunk Pilot | X-Plane 11” (X-Plane is a flight simulation engine)and description “Important: This is only in the flight simulation. This situation is not real! Everything in this video doesn’t happen in real life, because this situation is just a challenge for me to try in the flight simulation”
A screenshot of description of the YouTube Channel can be seen below.
From the above image it is clear that the video is from a simulation game.
