Jets Reported To Be Only 82 Feet Apart
A jet departing LAX came within 82 feet of an aircraft on a
taxiway at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday, which is less
than half the separation required by FAA regulations.
The Midwest Airlines Embraer 190 had reportedly just landed
following a flight from Milwaukee, and had been told by ATC to hold
on the taxiway. But the pilot went about 100 feet beyond the hold
line before the controller saw what was happening and told him to
stop, which left him about 70 feet from an active runway.
FAA spokesman Mike Fergus told the Associated Press that, even
though the Midwest airliner was not on the runway, it is considered
an incursion because he had crossed the hold line.
The departing airplane, a Northwest 757, was a flight to
Honolulu. The incident will be investigated by the FAA and
