Astonishing Footage Captures The Moment An Airbus A380 Flew UNDERNEATH A Helicopter

A video has captured the astonishing moment that a gigantic Airbus A380 flew underneath a helicopter filming the world's biggest passenger plane.

The video shows a camera operator recording the A380 approaching from a distance and then capturing the moment it appeared to passed just feet from the helicopter.

As the world's biggest airliner - the Airbus A380 weighs 577 tonnes, equivalent to 48 double decker buses, a fact that would have become very clear had the two aircraft got any closer.

While near misses between aircraft and drones have steadily increased, the filming with the helicopter was planned for an advertising campaign.
