This is the alarming moment an Airbus A320 suddenly pirouettes more than 90 degrees while taxiing – and nearly collides with another aircraft.
The near miss involved an S7 plane as it brought passengers to the terminal after landing at Novosibirsk’s Tolmachevo airport in Russia after a flight from Beijing.
Locals say there had been a sudden weather change from 2C to minus 20C, and a layer of thick ice formed on the taxiways.
“The pilot suddenly lost control and the plane pirouetted around, coming too close for comfort to a parked Tu-154 belonging to the same airline,” said an observer.
“The tail of the A320 ends up facing the Tupolev after the skid,” reported The Siberian Times .
No-one was hurt in the incident.
