I'm puzzled as to why nobody has brought this up here yet:
National Public Radio News just reported that US 27 nearly crashed this morning. Apparently it missed a truck that was sitting on the runway by a few seconds only during the take-off run. Looks like the take-off was not aborted, US 27 arrived in PHX on time. Initial blame goes to the truck driver, who may have been on his cell phone.
