LAX has 8th Runway 'Close Call,' Avoids Plane Crash
A Southwest flight and a Skywest turboprop had a close call runway incursion Sunday morning. Albeit considered minor, it was the eighth such incident since October.
A Sacramento bound Southwest flight crossed over a runway without permission, says the FAA. A Skywest plane coming in from Bakersfield was less than a mile away, preparing to land on the very same strip. A controller told the Skywest to go around the Southwest jet before landing. "Both planes proceeded without further problems," reported the Associated Press.
Improvements to LAX are on there way with a $333 million runway renovation plan called The South Airfield Improvement Project. It's scheduled to be completed in June. Other projects include a stoplight system and more taxiway lighting.
