An aircraft came within inches of crashing into an unidentified man riding on a quad bike, while his unidentified female friend filmed him (video below).

Seconds earlier, the man was having fun and performed a wheelie on the vehicle, reports the Daily Mail.

However, as he rides down the runway, an aircraft approaches.

The female, who is operating a video camera, is soon heard screaming as the plane gets closer.

The plane narrowly misses the man, leaving a trail of fumes behind.

The plane twists in midair and comes close to hitting the female, who is heard saying: "Oh my God...holy sh*t."

The video is reminiscent of a famous scene from the 1959 film 'North by Northwest,' when  Cary Grant is chased by an airplane.
