Plane comes within feet of spectators during landing described as 'particularly low'

Hair-raising video of a plane making a super low landing at Skiathos Airport has revealed just how dangerous taking plane selfies can be.

The new footage showed a British Airways aircraft coming into land at the Greek airport just feet from spectators.

As the aircraft, an Embraer E190 whizzed past hoards of people with cameras, many were forced to duck for cover.

A couple were even "pushed off" the ledge they were on by the power of the jet blast.

The airport, dubbed the European St Maarten, regularly sees low landings.

It's popular with plane spotters and tourists alike, with up to 100 people surrounding the runway on a busy day.

In fact, it's considered one of the main tourist attractions on the island.

But according to keen plane spotters, the flight, filmed just over a week ago, was coming in particularly low.

Cargospotter said: "Low landings and jet blasts can be observed on a daily basis and last week we filmed an incredible low British Airways Embraer E190 landing.

"The people who were watching the planes were pushed from the wall by the wake turbulence of the Embraer."

In most cases, low landings such as these make stunning plane selfies - but it can go horribly wrong.

In 2018, a British school boy was sent flying by jet blasts.

And in 2017, a tourist died after the jet engine blast from a plane blew her onto some rocks at the infamous St Maarten airport.

St Maarten and Skiathos Airport aren't the only hotspot for tourists hoping to take a plane selfie.

There are also airports in Thailand and Cyprus that are popular because of the low landing planes.
