About The 747 That Almost Landed On A 737

Mon Nov 22, 2004 5:29 am

I remember reading on these forums a few months back about a Asiana Airways 747 coming very close to landing on a Southwest Airlines 737. While digging thru the NTSB reports looking for anything related to Hurricane Charlie, I came across this, and thought it may be interesting to those who were discussing the near miss event:

NTSB Identification: LAX04IA302
Scheduled 14 CFR Part 121: Air Carrier operation of SOUTHWEST AIRLINES CO
Incident occurred Thursday, August 19, 2004 in Los Angeles, CA
Aircraft: Boeing 737-7H4, registration: N461WN
Injuries: 182 Uninjured.

This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

On August 19, 2004, about 1455 Pacific daylight time, a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-7H4, N461WN, was overflown by an Asiana Airlines Boeing 747 while the Southwest airplane was holding on the active runway 24L, at Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles, California. The Boeing 737 was operated by Southwest Airlines under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 121. There was no damage to the airplane nor injuries to the 182 passengers and crew. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and an instrument flight plan had been filed.

On August 24th Southwest Airlines safety personnel reported to the National Transportation Safety Board investigator that the captain of Southwest flight 440 reported that an Asiana Boeing 747 came with in 200 feet of his airplane while it was executing a missed approach. Southwest flight 440 was in position for takeoff on runway 24L and holding. The captain's statement indicates that he became concerned when the Asiana airplane did not come in to his view as it should have when landing on the parallel runway 24R. He began to move his airplane off the runway when the Asiana airplane overflew his, coming within 200 feet. Preliminary information indicates that the captain of the Asiana Boeing 747 identified the runway conflict and executed a missed approach.

>injuries to the 182 passengers and crew<

Given that the most people that plane should hold is 152 (137 pax, 3 F/As and 2 pilots), even counting a cockpit jumpseat and 2 deadhead F/A jumpseats, what would only be 155. Looks like a typo there

non-injuries to the 182 passengers and crew

Considering the report is a preliminary report then when the final copy comes out if it is a type then the error will be fixed.

I went back top passuer airport radar and backed the date and time,and followed the 744 coming in and it slowed and then shot off the right a bit and then did a go around....I never saw the wn come up on radar,so i assume he never got airborne
i can see for 80 miles

there were several links to the video the NTSB created on here.

Hello!! What kind of math is this???? Must be new wave. For the record: Aircraft capacity = Revenue Seats 137, 2 Pilots, 2 Cockpit jump seats and 3 flight attendant seats and 1 SWA employee jump seat. When I went to school with Herb that equaled 145.

It was at LAX? No surprise. It seems like LAX and JFK are the world's "pain in the biscuit" airports. Anybody got any videos?
