Near miss of two airplanes at Barcelona Airport

Near miss of two airplanes at Barcelona Airport

An amazing video shows you the reason why you should always use the seatbelts when the airplane is still on the ground: a landing airplane almost collided with another airplane about to take off. The landing UTAir airplane has to immediately break off landing and pull back up to avoid a disaster.

The deadliest accident in aviation history was in a similair situation like this: On March 27, 1977, the crowded airport of Gran Canaria (Spain) did not had radar yet and there was a thig fog limiting sight. A KLM Boeing 747 was planning to take off while a PanAm Boeing was also on the runway. The two planes collided with 583 people killed, only 61 people survived the crash.
