Re: Runway Incursion at JFK 1/13/23

Why do people sound sure that the DL began to roll before AA106 began to cross? I haven’t heard any tapes that were confirmed time-aligned, but the tape I did hear splicing the ground and tower frequencies suggested that AA106 began to cross before takeoff clearance was given to the delta. If that’s...
