Imagine piloting a Boeing 737 down a runway, throttle maxed out…
…only to see another jet barreling towards the same runway intersection, timed to meet in a perfect disaster?
Well, that’s exactly what happened on a June evening at Boston’s Logan airport.
Only the quick thinking of the first officer saved the lives of the 381 people on board both planes, which nearly collided on the runway.
One plane reached liftoff speed and couldn’t abort…
But the other pilots were able to keep their plane on the ground, which passed just 70 feet under the other plane as it lifted off the tarmac.
As it turned out, the whole problem was a traffic mistake caused by busy and distracted air traffic controllers.
One gave permission to takeoff to one plane; another gave permission to the other.
With a terminal between their lines of sight, neither plane could see the other as they moved forward in an X-shaped pattern, until it was almost too late.
