Today were published images of the incident caused by an Air Canada aircraft at San Francisco Airport.
On Friday, July 7th, an Air Canada aircraft had an incident at the time of landing at San Francisco International Airport.
The plane, which was operating the flight AC759 had permission to land on runway 28R, but the pilot inadvertently aligned the Airbus A320 with the taxiway parallel to the runway.
Realizing the situation, the air traffic controller ordered the aircraft to rise and another turn, after which landed safely in the designated runway.
The aircraft passed over to only 98 feet (30 meters) of two airliners that were preparing to take off. It also overflew at 196 (60 meters) and 295 (90 meters) feet of third and fourth aircraft.
Federal Aviation Administration is investigating and today it unveiled the images, showing the Air Canada plane flying over other aircraft on the taxiway waiting their turn to take off.
Aircraft on the ground were filled with passengers and fuel and a possible accident would have caused the worst air disaster in history.
