Just for the sake of discussion, another runway incursion incident occurred at Lehigh Valley International Airport last week.

Quote:
ALLENTOWN - An airliner preparing for takeoff Friday night came within 10 feet of crashing into a light plane on a runway at Lehigh Valley International Airport, averting a collision only because of the extraordinary airmanship of an alert flight crew, airport and federal officials said yesterday.

The pilot of United Express Flight 7138 had to brake and swerve to avoid hitting a Cessna four-seat propeller plane, the National Transportation Safety Board said.

According to the article, a trainee controller cleared the airliner to take off believing the Cessna had cleared the runway.

Read about it on FlightGlobal...Cessna was landing, CRJ holding short, was cleared for takeoff, Cessna missed turnoff, CRJ crew heard on radio Cessna missed turnoff, executed a turn at 120kt. Would this have caused some gear damage? 10 FEET IS CLOSE!!!

From what I read about this, the other plane was a Mesa CRJ-700. They didn't see the cessna to almost the V1 call, then aborted at 140 kts to avoid the Cessna. As much as I don't like Mesa, this was a great job by the crew and they are to be commended for this. This could have been a disaster.


Anyone know if this is a FAA tower, or an FCT?
