A Qatar Airways plane had to dodge a balloon that floated into its flight path near Brazil’s busiest airport.
Pilots quickly adjusted their course as the aircraft prepared to land at Sao Paulo’s Guarulhos International Airport on Sunday, reports said.
A photographer on the ground and a passenger on the flight captured how close the Boeing 777-300ER from Doha came.
The balloon appeared to be supporting an advertising banner. It was not clear how it came so close to the transport hub.
