A disaster was averted at a Barcelona airport when an Airbus 340 was about to collide with an incoming flight at El Prat Airport.

A video footage of the fiasco was captured by a plane spotter showing the near-miss of the two aircrafts.

In the footage, an Airbus 340 was apparently crossing the runway as a flight from Moscow was about to land. In the last minute, the pilot of the Boeing 767 from Russia quickly aborts the landing.

No passengers were harmed at any point, say officials.
