    The airport on the Greek island of Skiathos has a short 5,341-foot runway, which is why aircraft need to touch down early in order to reduce the risk of overrunning the tarmac.

    A chilling video has recently appeared on the Internet showing a British Airways plane landing just metres above tourists' heads.

    The tourists were knocked off a ledge during the shocking landing.

    ​Last year, a British schoolboy was hospitalised after he was sent flying in the air more than 10 metres after a similar "event".

    Luckily enough, the 12-year-old boy, who was watching the landing with his father, landed on sand and survived the incident.
