Amazing footage from Argentina shows the moment a low-flying plane nearly collided with a motorboat

Boating can be a great way to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature, but Argentinean boater Mariano Bradanini got more than he bargained for on a recent trip.

Footage uploaded to YouTube on Monday (May 4) shows a low-flying plane coming within feet of the man’s outboard-powered boat.

The three men on board were recording their day out at the Fiesta del Surubi fishing festival when the hair-raising near miss happened.

The low-flying plane appears to swerve at the last minute, avoiding what looked certain to be a painful collision.

Perhaps understandably the men can be heard shouting at the end of the video, cleared startled by this alarming incident.

In the past three days, the footage has gone viral with more than 100,000 views on YouTube, although commenters can’t seem to decide if the pilot is a talented daredevil or simply an idiot.
