A Crowd of 1,000 watched the final approach and landing of the C160 aircraft to the Ballenstedt airfield in Saxony-Anhalt, central Germany.
But what some plane spotters did not anticipate was that they would be coming within inches of the aircraft as it skimmed past them at high speed.
The pilot of the 31-ton Transall C-160 aircraft reported at the last moment that he couldn't see the start of the runway from his cockpit.
The pilot brought the aircraft down too soon and clipped the side road where plane spotters had gathered to take pictures and film. Some of the spotters where inches from death as the plane's wheels briefly touched the ground.
Some spectators commented that the Red Baron would be turning in his grave.
