A plane nearly landed on a sunbather after the pilot flew dangerously low along coast of Germany.

Pilot Juergen Drucker, 52, misjudged the airfield approach and came within inches of landing his Piper PA-28-181 on the sunbathing tourist in Dune, Heligoland, an island in the north coast.

"In my defense I can say that I didn't see him because he was lying down and I'm just grateful it worked out well and I didn't land on him," Drucker told Daily Mail

Sunbather Uwe Kaiser, 38, was seen simply standing up and walking off after what was possibly the scare of his life.

The plane hit a fence afterwards and plunged across part of the beach before making a safe landing.
