A webbing system is disclosed for use as an aircraft barricade wherein a plurality of rectangularly-shaped engaging loops are arranged in an alternating, multi-planar array and suspended across a landing area in the path of an approaching aircraft upon and assembly of support loops stretched between a pair of stanchions and connected on either side to an energy absorbing device. Slidably connected along upper and lower horizontal components of the support loops, the engaging loops are free to move laterally along the support loops toward the longitudinal axis of the aircraft when penetrated by the fuselage so that the aircraft is ensnared about its wings by the loops with equalized loading and its forward motion arrested.
