Watch This Airplane Just Miss Crashing Into a Speedboat by Mere Inches

1 minute read

Three men in Argentina had an unbelievably close shave when a small plane zoomed past their speedboat, descending so close that a crash looked unavoidable.

The men were participating in a fishing tournament and air show in Goya, northwest Argentina, on Sunday and were filming the event from their speedboat when the light plane descended out of nowhere, reports Australian Broadcast Corp. (ABC).

“We were really enjoying ourselves, and when we saw the plane, we got scared,” passenger Mariano Bradanini, 33, told ABC.

Though the men can be heard laughing as the plane buzzes by, they obviously weren’t expecting such a near miss. It’s not clear whether the pilot had lost control or whether it was all part of the air show.

“They did aerobatic shows everyday, so we were scared, but then we realized that he was an experienced pilot,” said Bradanini.
