This lucky tourist had a narrow escape when a plane skimmed the top of his head while taking a photo. As the light aircraft came in to the Gustaf III Airport in St Barts, one photographer tried to capture an once-in-a-lifetime image.

Plane spotter Sébastien Politano caught the incredible scene at what is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world, renowned for its difficult landing strip. The photographer in the white t-shirt was crouched and primed with his camera when the aircraft approached the Caribbean runway.

As the picturesque Caribbean landscape can be seen in the background, the plane’s wheels graze the crazy photographers hand as it flies overhead.
