WATCH: Two Passenger Planes Have Seconds to Avoid a Collision Disaster

If you have a fear of flying, this video probably isn’t going to help much.

Two planes landing at Barcelona Airport had a very close call at landing. One of the planes, a Boeing 767 was coming in from Moscow and on its final approach to land when the pilot’s plans were thwarted by an Argentina-bound Airbus crossing the runway right in front of it. The pilots flying the Boeing had mere seconds to carry out an emergency “go-around” procedure and were able to touch down safely a few minutes later.

Although it seems like something went amiss here, the airport’s administrators said both planes were exactly where they were supposed to be and that there was ample distance between the two to land safely.

Still, it’s a sight to see. Check out the video above.
