Yesterday, July 5th, a potentially catastrophic near-miss between two airliners was captured on video in Barcelona, Spain. We see an Aerolineas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 crossing a runway on which an Utair Boeing 767-300 was on final approach.

In the video shot by Miguel Angel, The Utair pilots immediately pulled up and aborted the landing, performing a go-around to land on runway 02. Telephoto lenses have the tendency to compress a scene and sometimes make things closer together than they really are, but in this video it appears that these two planes were headed for disaster.
