Watch: “Heart stopping” video captures “almost accident” in Toronto
Edited by Travel Weekly

    A video reported to have been filmed at Toronto Pearson Airport on Tuesday shows what some are calling an “almost accident” as an Air Canada Boeing 777 aircraft lands on the runway.

    In the “heart stopping” video, the aircraft is making what appears to be a very standard landing, but just as it makes contact with the runway, is hit by windshear or wake turbulence.

    The video has caught the attention of even the most experienced plane spotters and aviation experts, the pilots being praised for avoiding what could have been a catastrophic event.

    Viewers could only find fault with the timing of the truck which manages to cover the actual moment of touchdown.
