Passenger Plane Nearly Takes Out A German Sunbather
Holy mother-of-close-calls. There are so many things that could have gone absolutely horribly wrong here.
A passenger plane pilot came in a little low to land on this beach-front landing strip, and nearly minced a resident sunbather. If that didn't kill him, the landing gear might have. And if the landing gear missed, the tail might have hit him and done some terrible damage too. All in all, it was a near-miss that we're glad didn't become a real accident.
Luckily, none of that happened, and the pilot, plane and sunbather were unharmed. Still, it begs the question; Why is there a runway 5 feet from the edge of the beach?
