PASSENGERS endured a hair-raising landing during a flight from Valencia to Palma when the plane left the runway and crashed into a beacon light during high winds.
As the Air Europa pilot was landing at Son Sant Joan on Monday, the aircraft went off course, rolling at speed before crashing into the structure, leaving a huge hole in the fuselage.
Fire engines immediately surrounded the plane, with those on-board reportedly terrified but unhurt.
One passenger, Hugo Rodriquez, told Spanish press that ‘people were screaming and nobody knew what was happening’.
