An aviation enthusiast has captured the moment two planes came dangerously close to colliding at Barcelona airport on Saturday morning.

The amateur footage, caught on camera by Miguel Angel, shows a Boeing 767 from Russian airline Utair coming into land as an Argentinean Airbus A340 taxis across the runway. The Russian jet pulls up and performs a ‘go-around’, landing safely shortly after.

AENA, the public body that manages most Spanish airports, described the situation as “perfectly normal” and reassured there had been “no incident”. AENA also suggested that the angle of the filming gives the impression that the two planes are closer than in reality, although Miguel Angel described it as “one of the worst experiences I have ever had” on his YouTube channel.
