Spain: Passenger planes seconds from disaster
A passenger jetliner preparing to leave Barcelona’s airport taxied across a runway where another was about to land, forcing the arriving plane to abort its landing and climb sharply to avoid a possible disaster.
Amateur video footage showed the plane from an Argentine airline crossing the runway just as the aircraft from Russia was making its final approach.
Spanish airport officials said the Russian plane circled back and landed safely. None of the passengers on either plane was hurt.
An investigation into what happened is underway. No word on how how close the planes were at the time of the incident.
