An Air Canada jet nearly caused one of the worst disasters in aviation history





Air Canada Airbus A320

On Friday, Air Canada Flight 759 was forced to abort a landing attempt at San Francisco International after nearly touching down on one of the airport’s taxiways.

Flight 759, from Vancouver to San Francisco, had been cleared to land on Runway 28L. Instead, it inadvertently lined up for Taxiway C which runs parallel to the runway, the Federal Aviation Administration told Business Insider in an email.

The FAA has launched an investigation to find out just how close the Air Canada jet came to a collision.
