This is the shocking moment a plane almost crashed into a Lada driven by a reckless motorist who decided to take a shortcut across an airport runway.
The dramatic incident happened at a small airport in the central Russian town of Bolgar located in the Tatarstan autonomous republic. The video was shot on a mobile phone by a passenger who was in the pilot’s cabin as the small private plane, a Cessna 172, came in to land.
The video shows a silver Lada Largus emerging on the runway at the very last moment before the plane touches down. The pilot manages to avoid the crash by pulling up so that it clears the car by a matter of feet.
The pilot appears to have remained calm throughout the ordeal and he then proceeded to land the plane safely.
