Driving home can be tedious at times, but seeing this plane flying so low to the ground really perked up this particular journey.

During the drive from Smolensk to her hometown of Bryansk in Russia, Anastasia Schigartsova was stunned at the size of the jet which flew in front.

The twenty-four-year-old felt slightly frightened by such a sizeable jet flying so close to her car, but it was mixed with a feeling of incredulity.

The plane was an Antonov 124 jet, one of the largest cargo planes in the world and Anastasia believes there was a military air base close by.

“We were driving in late October from Smolensk back home to Bryansk,” she said.

“Near the Sescha settlement in Bryansk, we saw this huge plane right above our car.

“As far as I know, there is a military air base nearby.“I have never seen a plane as big as this one and it was an incredible feeling when it flew right above our heads, I was even a bit frightened.”
