Looks like an old Citroen to me?

According to the caption it does seem like the car wasn't paying any attention, so yeah there probably was some danger. Without a caption I would have guessed that the kingair was stopped and had waved the car on.

It almost looks like the King Air is just starting to swerve to avoid the car...

Maybe not...wouldn't want to be in the car, though! Is that a child in the back seat??

Look at the car in the picture. The driver seems oblivous, but the kid in the back seat is staring right at the plane.

I'm familar with the depth-of-field issues that telephoto lens use can cause, but based upon the shadow of the car and the shadow of the aircraft's wing (both relative to either side of the white painted markings in the lane) as well as the aircraft veering off centerline, it looks like they came close to hitting.

Or an idiot at the wheel. Seriously, how do you not see a friggin airplane coming down the road? Haha, I guess you don't have to pass an eye exam to get a driver's license in Belgium.

Ohhh Gosh, imagine the insurance company asking you about the car involved and you have to answer no sir it was a Beech 200 I hit last week on my way home  Smile

Btw, the car is a Peugeot 205 and I remember I owned a 205 GTI 1.9 in 1990 and it was pure fun to drive!

Or cars using this driveway should have proper equipment to communicate with the tower...

A caption comes into mind:

Girl: "Look, grampa, there's a plane driving over there."
Grampa: "No, sweetie, planes are flying, not driving."
Girl: "But grampa, this one is driving."
