runway OTTAWAFor the second time this year, a U.S. airline has been
involved in a close call at Pearson International Airport.
Federal investigators are looking into a possible runway incursion involving
an Envoy Air flight, almost a

incident that happened in April.
The Embraer 170 jet, operated by a subsidiary of American Airlines, had just
arrived on runway 24 left Tuesday at about 5:30 p.m. after a flight from
Chicagos OHare airport. As the jet exited the runway after landing, the
controller issued instructions to the crew to stop on a taxiway, short of a
parallel runway that was being used for departures.
The controller then cleared a Westjet Boeing 737 bound for St. Johns to
depart on that parallel runway.
But the controller apparently became concerned that the American jet wasnt
going to stop and might taxi into the path of the departing Boeing. He
issued firm instructions to the pilots. Envoy 3765, stop, stop, according
to a recording on the website LiveATC.net.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada said Wednesday that it had
dispatched investigators to Pearson to assess the occurrence and determine
whether a full investigation was warranted.
Several other runway incursions at Pearson, Canadas busiest airport, are
already under investigation by the safety board.
