Videographer, Radko Nasinec, captured the cringe-worthy footage of the Boeing 737-430 (bottom left) narrowly avoiding a crash as its wheels grazed the runway. The video, which was shot at the Václav Havel Airport in Prague, Czech Republic, shows the airplane swaying back and forth and dipping to the right (top right) as it was attempting its first landing.

During the second attempt to land, the plane once again swayed back and forth on its way down, but this time the pilot was able to make a safe landing.
