Trending Now

Humpback whales and pontoon planes — they're both commonplace in Alaska. Their two worlds almost collided last week.

Thomas Hamm captured this close call with nature last week when a whale off the remote island of Angoon almost became an accidental landing strip.

If you look closely, the whale breaches the surfaces and clears its blowhole before a near collision with the seaplane.

The video started gaining traction on the Web over the last few days as local and the national media outlets started sharing the don't-miss content.
