According to an article on CBS News' website, the FAA are now investigating a third incident at ORD, which occured this past Sunday.

The article is here.

From article:
The latest incident involved two commercial planes preparing to take off on crisscrossing runways Sunday.

An Airbus A320 plane had been cleared for takeoff but was told to abort four seconds later because another plane had been readying for takeoff on an intersecting runway, the Federal Aviation Administration said. FAA officials said Tuesday they were trying to determine whether the two planes got closer than allowed under federal rules.

My apologies if this has already been discussed, but my seach didn't discern anything. If this is a duplicate thread, please delete. Thank you.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

That's interesting. Four in 3 months does seem like a lot. I guess this problem will go away when ORD turns into an all 9/27 configuration. Now I still don't get what they are going to do when crosswinds become bad.
