A UTair pilot aborted his landing at Barcelona’s El Prat Airport on July 5 after an Aerolíneas Argentinas jet crossed the runway. An aviation enthusiast recorded the close call as UTair Flight UT5187 prepared for landing on Saturday, July 5. The UTair Boeing 767-300 completed its journey from Moscow, landing safely after circling around.

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 incidence the plane landed safely on runway 02, and the Argentinas took-off heading Buenos Aires
