NTSB investigating CRJ/PC-12 runway incursion at Charlotte

3rd June 2009 - 10:53 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a runway incursion that occurred on the morning of 29 May at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) involving Pilatus PC-12 and a Bombardier CRJ200 bound for New Bern, NC (EWN).

At about 10:17 (EST), a PSA Airlines CRJ200 operated as US Airways Express flight 2390, was cleared for takeoff on runway 18L. After the regional jet was into its takeoff roll, a Pilatus PC-12 was cleared to taxi into position and hold farther down the same runway in preparation for a departure roll that was to begin at the taxiway A intersection.

After the ground-based collision warning system (ASDE-X) alerted controllers to the runway incursion, the takeoff clearance for the regional jet was cancelled. The pilot of the PC-12, seeing the regional jet coming down the runway on a collision course, taxied the PC-12 to the side of the runway. The FAA reported that the regional jet stopped approximately 10 feet from the PC-12.

Visual meteorological conditions prevailed with 9 miles visibility. There were no reported injuries to any of the 42 passengers or crew of three aboard the RJ, or to any of those on the PC-12.
