A DRAMATIC video of a sea plane just missing a surfacing humpback whale as it came in to land in Alaska has become a hit online - and the man who shot it says it was blind luck.

Thomas Hamm, a San Diego businessman, was in the remote village of Angoon, about 60 miles (35 km) southwest of Juneau, last week when he recorded the footage with his cellphone.
