04/25/08 85 W - + 15 - 16 Runway Incursions

Forget skipped inspections and botched repairs, this morning's New York Times article notes, what really worries aviation specialists is runway collisions. April 6 at Dallas-Fort Worth, one incident recounts, a tug pulling a 777 comes within 25 feet of an MD-80. The tug operator couldn't stop in time. Here's an FAA site dedicated to runway incursions, for pilots, controllers, and vehicle drivers. There are some stats there. For actual reports, or a database, try the Aviation Safety Report System. Search their online database by Event Type.
