A massive hot air balloon recently crashed into the apron of Medellin’s José Mara Cordova International Airport in Colombia.

According to a video uploaded on social media, the balloon came dangerously close to colliding with a Copa Airlines Boeing 737 sitting in the apron. There were no injuries as a result of the incident.

In Colombia, a similar incident occurred. A balloon landed on top of a jet bridge in Colombia last month, narrowly missing two planes parked at the airport. The airport’s management had this to say about the incidents:

“We are urgently calling not only the people that threw this balloon but to everyone that still undertakes this activity, for them to see the danger the activity poses. We ask them to be more responsible.

“We insist that these activities should not be undertaken, especially in areas so close to the airport, because (the balloons) can become an accident or incident risk, impacting the operations,” he added.
