2nd of Oktober, a Braathens aircraft carrying nearly 60 people had to abort landing only 30 m above the ground. The reason was that an SAS aircraft had taxied onto the rwy without permission from the tower. It's said this was a serious mishap.

This summer, I saw a Braathens 737 nearly land on top of a piper cherokee at NCL. He didn't abort the landing untill he was over the tarmac of the rwy.

(forgive me if this has been posted before.)

Very glad to hear that no serious accident resulted.

As for a 737 nearly landing on top of a Piper Cherokee, I had a similar thing happen to myself in the United States once. In 1997, bright sunny day at Port Columbus International (CMH) I was in a Cessna 152. I was about to depart on Runway 10R and told to 'taxi into position and hold', which I did. I sat there, patiently waiting for my takeoff clearance for about 8 minutes. The 727 that had landed ahead of me had long since cleared the 'active'. Since I heard nothing, I called the tower asking them when I was going to be given permission to leave this airport. 5 seconds later a very panicky voice come over the radio '£$*&@!^& Cessna 53398, cleared for immediate!! takeoff, Rwy 10R there's a 737 behind you!!!!!' That *sswipe in the tower had forgotten about me!

I firewalled the throttle (inasmuch that is posible in a C-152) and climbed as fast as I could. When I made my right turn to exit the pattern I could see the 737 already turning off onto the taxiway heading toward the gates!!

It's interesting, at that time a lot of my pilot friends were reporting a string of hairy incidents at CMH. I don't know where they got their controllers from at the time. Another one that sticks out is the tower asking me to follow a taxiing United 727 from about 150 ft behind it!! Yeah right!!! Ever heard of jet-blast?? Oh well. I hope they've done something about it.

Wow, what an experience zb.

More infon: The Braathens was a b737-500, the SAS a F-50. The f50 taxiied onto the rwy, before turning off again. The 737 was only 2000m away when they noticed it.

over 80 people were in danger during the incident.

The incident took place in Northern Norway at Harstad/Narvik airport - (EVE/ENEV). The BU flight came from Tromsø (TOS) making a stop at EVE before continueing to Trondheim (TRD).

The duty controller at ENEV where the incident with BRA/SAS occured is a friend of mine, and it is now known that a SAS F50 entered the active rwy without clearence. SAS supports this, and calls it pilot error.

I saw an interview with the atc on the news. He was called a "hero" after the incident. The episode was however scaringly simmilar to the one in Milano.  Sad
