Air Canada plane nearly lands on crowded taxiway at San Francisco airport

Air Canada plane nearly lands on crowded taxiway at San Francisco airport”

An Air Canada plane narrowly averted disaster after it nearly landed on a taxiway with four other planes on it in San Francisco Friday night.

The Air Canada A320 from Toronto was cleared to land on a runway at the airport just before midnight on Friday, the FAA said in a statement. If the Air Canada flight landed on Taxiway C, which it almost did, it would've run into four airplanes full of luggage, people, and a lot of gasoline.

In audio of the incident, the Air Canada pilot spoke to the control tower to double-check its landing site.

The plane circled around and landed successfully on its second attempt, according to the FAA.

The Air Canada Airbus 320 was cleared to land at a runway at San Francisco worldwide airport late on Friday.

The flight was cleared to land, but it appears the pilots were confused and accidentally lined up on a taxiway instead of the two runways.

The dissemination of a recording of the control tower confirms that the Air Canada flight was heading towards the wrong track.

"The lessons learned from LAX - now at night, whenever an aircraft is on the runway, we turn our strobe lights on", he said.

Tesla Ready to Launch Model 3
With the results released Monday, Tesla's first-half sales were at the lower end of its prediction of 47,000 to 50,000 units. Musk also mentioned that "Production grows exponentially, so August should be 100 cars and September above 1500".

"If you could imagine an Airbus colliding with four passenger aircraft wide bodies, full of fuel and passengers, then you can imagine how horrific this could have been", Aimer added.

Air traffic control then tells the pilot to initiate a "go-around", which is when a pilot circles the airport in order to line up for another landing. There is no one on 28R but you.

"OK, 759", the pilot said.

"This is pretty huge". The taxiway sits parallel to the runway. An Air Canada spokesman had no other comment after The Mercury News' request. They can't go anywhere'. No injuries were reported and the incident is being investigated. The Air Canada plane was capable of holding as many as 220 passengers, plus crew.
