10. Woman Nearly Hit by Plane Taking Off
This footage, taken in an unknown location, shows the moment when two people nearly get hit by a plane taking off.

The plane comes within metres of collecting the woman holding the camera. It even seems to take evasive action nearly grounding its left wing on the tarmac.
