A light aircraft conveying hundreds of Arsenal fans from Basel, Switzerland crashed on Wednesday while preparing to take off. One person died in the incident.
It was gathered that shortly before the crash, the aircraft almost hit a British Airways flight, BA749 sitting on the runway at Basel airport.
According to the Sun UK, one fan, Akhil Vyas, told Mirror he was sitting on the BA flight at the airport when the aircraft, which crashed shortly afterwards, flew just above him and the other terrified passengers.
The A320, bound for London Heathrow, was waiting at the gate, ready to take off when the incident happened.
Hundreds of Arsenal football fans are stuck in Switzerland tonight after Basel Airport was closed after the light aircraft reportedly crashed while attempting to land.
