A viral video of a plane landing is sending chills down everyone's spine. The landing of this plane is like any other landing, except that this one made a superlow landing at the Skiathos Airport in Greece.
Hair-raising footage captured by one of the persons on-ground shows what is possibly the most dangerous landing in the world. The video was uploaded on YouTube by a popular channel 'Cargospotter' and shows a British Airways Embraer E190 going past spectators. It's no surprise that some of the spectators were forced to duck for cover. As per reports, one couple was even 'pushed off' a ledge by the massive thrust of the jet engines.
Here's the video:
The Skiathos Airport in Greece is commonly known as 'Europe's St Maarten' due to its low landing location. The airport is right beside a beach which attracts quite some adrenaline-junkie tourists who stand up to click selfies with planes that fly overhead. Cargospotter in its note about the airport wrote:
"Airplanes land and depart right behind a small road and the airport of Skiathos became one of the main tourist attractions of the Greek island. Last week we filmed an incredible low British Airways Embraer E190 landing. The people who were watching the planes were pushed from the wall by the wake turbulence of the Embraer." they said
Ever since the video surfaced online, it has garnered over 2 million views and hundreds of comments from spectators who were definitely shaken. Here are some of the comments:
"This YouTuber deserves an award for putting the thumbnail as the first video."
Another user wrote and also prayed for the well-being of spectators:
"People roaming around. Lord save their hearing. Amen"
The comments had no limit and took a hilarious turn with every other user:
"The British airways Embraer Landed Lower than my grades."
