WADDINGTON, ENGLAND (RNN) – Spectators at a British air show got closer to one aircraft than they anticipated, creating a scary scene that was caught on camera.

At the RAF International Air Show in Waddington, England on Saturday, onlookers were in awe of a Turkish F-16 preparing to land.

But, as the video shows, the aircraft comes in so low that onlookers had to duck beneath the super fast fighter jet.

No one was injured, but YouTube user Baz300zx said that the plane’s landing came “a bit too close for comfort.”
