Amazing near-miss in the Strait of Istanbul
An 260 meters long container vessel made an amazing close call towards the deep shores of Bosporus on Saturday morning.
The ship, proceeding in low visibility, managed to make a sharp turn in just a hundred of meters.
Passing from Black Sea towards Marmara, the large container vessel made her turn at the very last moment if not too late, for an unknown reason.
It doesn't get any closer than this
