Now that's what you call REAL plane spotting! Enthusiasts come within inches of death after military aircraft comes down short of the runway

    Crowd of 1,000 watching final landing of military plane on Ballenstedt airfield in Saxony-Anhalt, central Germany
    But pilot of 31-ton Transall C-160 aircraft suddenly reported she couldn't see start of runway from her cockpit
    Brought aircraft down on a side road where spectators were standing and they almost ended up being crushed
