Video: Moment two planes almost collide on runway at Barcelona airport

The heart stopping moment two planes nearly collided on a runway in Barcelona, Spain has been captured on camera. The incident, which happened on Saturday, shows a plane crossing a runway as another plane is coming in for a landing and had to abort just seconds before touching down, with the pilot carrying out an emergency 'go-around' procedure.
The jet, which had travelled from Russia, landed safely shortly afterwards. The video of the dramatic moment was posted on Youtube. See more pics and the video after the cut...



Below is what the person who posted it, Miguel Ángel, wrote about the incident

Yesterday (on Saturday), early in the morning...What you see is what happened. An UTair Boeing 767-300 (VQ-BSX) incoming from Moscow as UT5187 and Aerolíneas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 (LV-FPV)...
The Utair 767 was about to land on Runway 02 while the Argentinas was crossing the runway. By the time russian pilots sight Argentinas (they were taxiing to Holding point of RW25R for take-off) on runway while they were on final approach, they did their best making an impressive and close go around.
After that incident the plane landed safely on runway 02, and the Argentinas took-off heading Buenos Aires. I hope you enjoy the video, Greetings from BCN,
Miguel Ángel
