CLOSE CALL: Iberia flight narrowly misses busy road

AN Iberia plane was photographed flying perilously close to drivers near a Costa Rica airport. 

The flight from Madrid descended to just a few metres above vehicles on a busy road queuing to get into San Jose airport.

The Airbus 340 plane passed just over a security fence before making a safe landing.

“That day the plane took a different setting from the control tower because of the wind,” said an Iberia press officer.
