Passenger Planes Seconds Away From Crashing Into Each Other Diverted Away By Alert Pilot


An amateur recording at a Barcelona airport captured what could’ve been one of the worst airline disasters in the 21st century.

A Boeing 767 was readying for takeoff — in the background, an Airbus 340 was coming down for a landing.

But thankfully, the pilot of the Airbus aborted the landing. He circled around the airport a reported seven times before safely landing.

With the quick-thinking of the pilot, disaster was averted.
