Dramatic video has emerged of the moment a British Airways plane flew just metres above the heads of tourists in Greece.

The British Airways Embraer E190 aircraft was filmed at Skiathos airport in Greece as it was approaching the runway to land.

Skiathos airport is dubbed by aviation enthusiasts “European St Maarten” due to its low landings.

Hundreds of people gather to watch jumbo jets land just beyond a popular tourist beach on the island.

People are warned not to get too close to the runway, with a sign saying: “Danger. Please keep away from aircraft blast.”

The footage of the British Airways landing shows people being pushed off a wall by the gust from the aircraft blast.
