Two jets almost collided in Barcelona and they are very lucky that nothing happened. On Monday, Flying Mag shared about what happened and how lucky they are that it worked out okay. A UTair Boeing 767-300 almost ran into an UTair Boeing 767-300 which just happened to be right in the way.
Fox News explained that one plane was trying to leave when this all went down. The other plane was trying to land. If they would have both done what was planned, they would have been fine but somehow there was a problem and they ended up almost colliding because of it. This could have ended up in a huge crash that killed everyone on board.
The man who caught it on video is speaking out and said it was "one of the worst experiences I have ever had". This video was captured by plane enthusiast Miguel Angel. He probably never thought that he would get lucky enough to catch something like this on tape but he was able to do it. This is a moment in his life that he will never forget.
You can watch the video on this page to see it go down. This YouTube video does admit that it makes things look a little closer than they are and it isn't quite as bad as it appears. They were about 1/2 mile away from each other. The airplane did have to do a go around but it was a bit scary to everyone involved.
These two jets almost collided in Barcelona. There is a rule when you are flying to look both ways just like coming to a four way stop sign. The crew on the ground should have noticed it coming and this should have never happened. Regardless everyone is lucky that nothing happened to anyone. This video is one that you will want to make sure you watch.
