Jets Collide in Miami

You have maybe/probably have seen this story in the news, the tale of two jets colliding on the runway. In the Navy, especially on aircraft carriers, we don’t have this issue. Every move is micro-managed down to the foot. Or even the half-foot. Real estate is precious aboard the big-decks. And if collisions do occur, they are either crash-landings or the wings scrapping each other. I’ll bet this little boo-boo did not win Air France or Aerolineas Argentinas any customers. For all you turbine-heads, the planes were the 777-300 (Boeing, I believe) and an Aerobus jet of some sort.
