  • Delta/ASA plane 3 seconds from colliding

    ATLANTA -- A Delta 757 and an Atlantic Southeast regional jet came within three seconds of a disastrous runway collision Friday at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

    Without clearance from the tower, ASA flight 876 to Greensboro, N.C. crossed runway 27-right at 10:10 a.m. just as Delta flight 261 roared down that same runway, taking off for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

    Well Heck, that's 2.5 seconds from a problem. What's the fuss about?

      Just goes to show more technology really won't help until pilots (as in this case) and controllers (in other cases) start making fewer mistakes.

          Don't they teach Delta pilots that the Emu always has the right of way?

            Just goes to show that the south runways need an end-around taxiway as well.

              Or intersections between runways and taxiways need some traffic lights?

                I know seriously.

                Glad the ASA CRJ didn't leave the gate 3 seconds earlier!!

                  Proper communication between pilots and ATC would solve the problem.

                      Thank goodness it wasn't an Embraer. It would still be on the gate!

                      It will be interesting to see the report.

                        They got rid of the Brasilias a few years ago, 2003 or 2004 I think. And the ATR-72s are on the way out too. Sucks for turboprop fans like myself.

                          I believe Dale was actually referring to the E-170/190, or as it's known at AC, E-180 .

                            ASA doesn't operate any Embraer A/C. Only CRJs and a few ATRs.

                              the ATC gave instructions to ASA to wait until the Delta flight took off - - the ASA pilot repeated the instructions back to ATC to hold and wait, yet he crossed the runway anyway...this is one incident that is definately pilot error and not ATC or communication...
