Pilot avoids possible collision with crossed plane on foot …

July 7, 2014

The image you see above occurred yesterday at the El Prat airport in Barcelona. A UTair airline Boeing 767-300 approached to land when an Aerolineas Argentinas Airbus A340 crossed the runway. The Boeing pilot decides to abort the landing at the last minute.

Those responsible for the airport assured that there was no danger. Was there? Below you can see the video.

AENA, the Spanish airport authority, has ensured that the maneuver has been carried out correctly, there is no error. He attributes to “perspective” the fact that both planes appear closer than they are.

According to statements by AENA at 20 minutes, it is a “totally common motor and air” maneuver that pilots usually use when they do not see the landing clearly. AENA, however, does not specify what caused the UTair pilot to abort the landing, although the images appear clear.
