Heart-stopping near-miss video: Plane aborts landing at last second to avoid collision

This is a heart-stopping moment to watch and a fortunate save on the part of the pilot. The miracle was shared on social media to a stunned audience that made it go viral.

Miguel Ángel posted the incident on You Tube Sunday, but the near-miss happened early the morning before.

An UTair Boeing 767-300 (VQ-BSX) incoming from Moscow as UT5187 and Aerolíneas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 (LV-FPV) were involved into what could be the bigger disaster of Barcelona Airport.

After that incidence the plane landed safely on runway 02, and the Argentinas took-off heading Buenos Aires

Imagine being a passenger on the right side of the plane, LOL. Be scarier than seeing Oprah Winfrey step out of the bath.
