Landing Plane Almost Takes Out Sunbather


Video of a plane nearly taking out a beachgoer is going viral - here it is from the BBC.

Wow. You obviously heard German there - seems the 52-year-old pilot was flying along the coast of Germany when he nearly landed on a sunbather on a northern island.

The Daily Mail quotes him, "...it wasn't one of my greatest achievements in the cockpit." The pilot says he expects to face a fine but hopes he won't lose his license.
