Man uses runway to give girlfriend a driving lesson!

Legazpi Airport

A Philippine plane with 80 passengers aboard narrowly avoided a crash – after a man teaching his girlfriend to drive sped across the runway as the aircraft landed.

The Cebu Pacific plane briefly touched down at Legazpi airport in the central Philippines on Saturday, but took off again as the van being driven by the couple crossed the runway.

‘That van could have turned us into a fireball had I not successfully aborted landing,’ said pilot Christopher Nowioki.
