Photographer Almost Gets Hit By Plane Trying To Take The Perfect Photo

April 12, 2016

This is a 360-pannable video (below, this is just a screenshot so stop clicking on it nothing's gonna happen) of photographer Mekki Jaidi almost getting his head taken off by a prop plane landing in Saint-Barth. He said the front tire actually brushed his shutter button-pushing finger. You can see his resulting shot after the jump, and decide for yourself if it was worth it. It absolutely wasn't though, just so we're all clear.

Keep going for the shot and video (don't forget you can pan it to see that even the guy on the moped was ducking).

Thanks to Dunc, who would have set up a remotely operated camera and taken photos from the relative safety of a nearby bar.
