Flying Anywhere This Summer? Watch These Airplane Near-Misses [VIDEO]
Summer is travel season for lots of people since school is out and the weather is awesome. Air travel however, may not be for everyone.
Yeah, I know, air travel is statistically the safest way to get from point A to point B but, accidents happen. Sometimes it's mechanical failure and sometimes airplane mishaps are weather-related. Usually though, aircraft accidents come down (no pun intended) to good old human error. Check out this collection of near misses caused by inattention, carelessness, improper use of controls and, I'm sure, some straight up stupidity. One pilot, at 1:16, lets the parking brake off too early. That one's kinda funny.
