VIDEO: Two planes nearly collide on runway

(Barcelona-El Prat In'tl / YouTube)
New, heart-stopping video captures the dramatic moment two planes almost collided on a runway in Barcelona. The footage reveals the near-miss between a landing Boeing 767 from Russian airline Utair, and an Aerolineas Argentinas Airbus A340 taxiing down the runway at El Prat Airport in Spain.



The Argentinas Airbus, apparently unaware of the Russian Boeing making its final approach, continues taxiing into the holding area, directly crossing the landing plane's path on the runway. By the time the Russian pilots spot the Argentinas on the runway, it's almost too late, and nearly T-bones them in mid-descent.

The Russian Boeing is forced to abort the landing, and fly back up into the sky in an impressive go-around. Fortunately, the Boeing landed safely shortly afterwards.
