  • Crazy runway incursion

    OK, this one seemed awfully close to a pretty big disaster. The incursion pilots even noticed their mistake and somehow reduced their profile on the runway?

    A GoJet Airlines Canadair CRJ-700, registration N154GJ performing flight G7-3710 from Chicago O'Hare,IL (USA) to Toronto,ON (Canada), was taxiing for departure and had been cleared to taxi to taxi to holding point EE runway 28R via taxiway F and N. While taxiing ground control reminded the crew to reset their transponder to the correct squawk and contact tower. The crew missed the left turn from taxiway F onto N and continued straight, did not notice the Wig Wag lights due to the distraction and went past the hold short line.

    An Envoy Embraer ERJ-145 registration N698CB performing flight MQ-3084 from Chicago O'Hare,IL to Columbus,OH (USA), had been cleared for takeoff from runway 28R intersection EE and was accelerating through 56 KIAS about 1000 feet short of intersection runway 28R/taxiway F when the ASDE-X system triggered now recognizing MQ-3084 as departing and showing G7-3710 40 feet short of the hold short line F runway 28R at 11 knots. Tower had basically no reaction time to cancel the takeoff clearance.

    The Embraer continued takeoff and spotted the Canadair entering the runway while accelerating through 100 KIAS. The flight crew maneouvered their aircraft off the center line to the left to avoid a collision.

    The crew of the Gojet, believing they were now joining taxiway N, began to turn left onto runway 28R when they saw the oncoming Embraer and turned to present the lowest possible profile to the Embraer. The crew observed the nose gear of the Embraer lifting off the ground and estimated, that the wingtip to wingtip clearance, when the aircraft passed each other, had reduced to 15-20 feet.
