Near collision at Barcelona Airport caught on VIDEO -

On 05 July, 2014 what could of been a horrible ending for some airline travelers at Barcelona's El-Prat (BCN) airport was avoided.

In the video, we see an Aerolineas Argentineas Airbus A340-300 (LV-FPV) crossing a runway on which an Utair Boeing 767-300 (VQ-BSX) incoming from Moscow was on final approach.  The Russian pilots completed an impressive maneuver thus avoiding what could of been a horrible tragedy.

The video was shot by Miguel Angel. The Utair pilots immediately pulled up and aborted the landing, performing a go-around to land on runway 02. Telephoto lenses have the tendency to compress a scene and sometimes make things closer together than they really are, but in this video it appears that these two planes were headed for disaster.

After the incidence, the Utair Boeing 767-300 landed safely on runway 02, and the Aerolineas Argentineas Airbus A340-300 took-off heading Buenos Aires.
