One jet was cleared for takeoff, but another pilot ignored instructions from the tower and taxied right in the jet's path[...]
The article includes the relevant transcript excerpt, part of which follows:
US Airways Flight 1752: And, uh, US 1752, are we cleared to cross here at November?
Air Traffic Control: 1752, I need you to taxi...I gave you instructions... November Sierra. Make the right. Make the right turn southbound on November.
US1752: OK, November Sierra southbound. We're going to Charlie 27. It is open.
ATC: 1752, you are...1752, what are you doing? 1752, hold your position. 1752, ground?
US1752: You said I was cleared.
ATC: No I didn't, 1752. I cleared you to go south on November.
US1752: I specifically asked to cross, and you said, "Cleared to cross 9 left."
ATC: Negative, 1752. I gave you, I gave you a right turn to go south, November Sierra.
NBC10 seems to be the only Philly network with any info (even KYW had zilch!), so I apologize for not being able to cross-ref this one. Kudos to NBC10--they seem to have done their homework (they do indeed call it a "runway incursion") and the graphics (click the pic next to the headline and you'll see a slide show pop up) do their job.
In any event, I know this isn't BREAKING NEWS!!!! or important and life-changing/threatening/saving/whatever, but I think it is worth noting, especially seeing as it occurred during a period of light airside activity (relatively speaking, of course), on a Sunday, at night--how many other runway incursions were like that? (Honest question, that; not being smart or rhetorical.)
I'm trying to find out what ZW flight aborted--Flight Aware's not cooperating right now...
