Two Large Planes Almost Collide at Airport (Video)

| by Michael Allen

There was  a near collision between two large planes at the Barcelona-El Prat Airport in Spain on July 5.

According to Uproxx.com, YouTube user "Miguel Angel" shot video (below) of the near crash on Saturday between a Utair Boeing 767-300 trying to land from Moscow and an Aerolineas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 that was taxing on the same runway.

Fortunately, the Utair Boeing 767-300 was able to abort the landing and avoid a massive disaster.

Miguel Angel wrote on YouTube: "After that incident, the plane landed safely on runway 02, and the Argentinas [Airbus] took-off heading for Buenos Aires."

The Daily Mail reports that the Spanish Airports and Air Navigation (AENA) released a statement that claimed there never any danger of a collision because there was enough room for both planes on the runway, which contradicts the pilot's sudden aborted landing.
