Plane dodges quad bike in extreme near miss

A video of a near miss between a bi-plane and a quad bike on an airfield runway is going viral online.

It is the handy work of daredevils Those Crazy Texans, who filmed the clip during a practice run for an upcoming show.

The footage shows one of the group performing a wheelie on the quad bike along an unidentified runway, reports Metro.

As his friend films in the background, a light aircraft suddenly appears in the distance travelling at speed towards them.

The pair escape unharmed as the plane manages to swerve around them at the last second, leaving a trail of smoke in its wake.

A woman with an American accent can be heard screaming "Oh my God" afterwards as the aircraft flies away.

The clip has been a hit online, racking up more than 60,000 hits in less than 48 hours.
