UAE’s leading airline Emirates shared another breathtaking video of its jumbo A380 being ‘chased by a car’ on a runaway in Düsseldorf Airport, Germany.
The video of the event reminds us of an action packed scene from a Hollywood movie.

Neitizens had become more and more curious of what was actually happening.
Was it a real-life car chase?
Here is what we could gather of what exactly happened.
The car that we see in the video is a ‘Follow Me’ car. Airports all over the world have these vehicles stationed. The purpose of the car is to check the runways and taxiways for any unwanted debris prior to or after takeoffs.
Netizens have been going gaga over the video clip. One user, Barca For Ever, said, “Love you Emirates Airline @emirates”
Idowu Moses Ireoluwa said, “If you have experienced this airline, you won't like to change airline.”
Ismail Vitla said, “Super cool.”
But all were not so happy with the clip. Some Twitter users got suspicious of the video. Well who cares, it is an interesting video to watch.
Emirates said, “Now that’s how you make a grand entrance. Video credit: Tom Jones.”
Emirates confirmed that the Dubai International Airport was closed from 12.36hrs to 12.51hrs local time on Sunday due to suspected drone activity in the surrounding airspace.
Emirates Airline’s A380 made history on Friday as it took off from Dubai Airport with 500 passengers on board from over 150 nationalities underscoring its mission to bring the world together.
There were no immediate reports of casualties from the strikes and no claim of responsibility, two police officers said. A number of Shi'ite Muslim militant groups have offices and supporters in eastern Baghdad.
Both had pleaded not guilty to charges of violating the official secrets act, which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years. "Three years each, no hard labour," said the source, who declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the issue.
Chanting the same "Women, life, freedom!" mantra used in demonstrations in Iran, about 25 Afghan women protested in front of the Iranian embassy in Kabul, before being dispersed by Taliban forces firing in the air, an AFP correspondent reported.
