According to FAA flight data, an Air Canada flight got within 59 feet of landing on a taxiway with four other aircraft waiting on it.

Newly released video shows just how close an Air Canada Airbus A320 came to hitting another plane at San Francisco airport.

Air Canada flight 759 from Toronto was descending toward a taxiway holding four other planes when it narrowly avoided disaster at San Francisco International Airport on July 7.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said the Air Canada Airbus A320 was cleared to land on runway 28R but instead lined up its approach for a parallel taxiway, which four other airliners were using to get in position to take off. In total, more than 1,000 people’s lives were put at risk in the incident. – The Daily Mail
