Passenger planes almost collide in Barcelona Airport

Published on: 09 Jul 2014

A passenger jetliner preparing to leave Barcelona's El Prat airport taxied across a runway where another was about to land, forcing the arriving plane to abort its landing and climb sharply to avoid a possible disaster.

An Airbus 340 is shown crossing the runway at El Prat Airport as a flight from Moscow is coming in to land. The pilot of the Boeing 767 from Russia then aborts the landing.
