    The decommissioned Transall C-160 was making its final landing at Ballenstedt in Germany and as it approached the ground — toward a pack of 1,000 onlookers — the pilot lost sight of the runway causing the aircraft to dip dramatically close to those watching it.

    According to LiveLeak, the plane weighs 31 tons and came within only a few feet of plane spotters as it was brought down too soon and clipped the side of the road. As Live Leak put it, some onlookers were “within inches of death.”

    Just as it bounced off the road.
