Watch as one plane almost hits another as it comes in to land at Barcelona Airport. WATCH

Barcelona - In what could possibly be the epitome of 'touch and go,' two airplanes had a super near miss at Barcelona Airport over the weekend. 

A video posted on YouTube shows a UTair Boeing 767-300 from Moscow, preparing to touch down at Barcelona Airport. However, just as it comes in to land, an Aerolíneas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 en route to Buenos Aires crosses the same runway.

Fortunately the UTair plane makes a quick ascent, just missing the Aerolineas aircraft... and when we say just missed, we really mean it! The Boeing practically scrapes the top of the Airbus with its belly.

Pretty damn scary!
