Classified video footage (below) of a German "Luna" drone shows it barely missing an Afghanistan passenger plane with 100 people aboard.

The video, recorded in in 2004, was somehow uploaded to YouTube and has caused controversy in Germany over the use of drones, according to Mediaite.com.

In the video, the Luna drone flies dangerously under the left wing of the passenger plane. 

The German magazine Der Spiegel reported that the unmanned drone flew less than two meters (yards) away from the Airbus A300 passenger plane.

Germany has plans to purchase 16 more unmanned drones, reports My Fox DC.
