FAA Investigating SFO Incident Involving Another Air Canada Plane

A spokesperson said the inbound flight from Montreal was given clearance to land Sunday night, but then air traffic control gave orders to "go around" because it believed another plane may have been in the way.

In this particular incident, the passengers weren't in any immediate danger, an FAA spokesman said.

According to the FAA, Flight 781 from Montreal was cleared to land on runway 28-R by air traffic control.

Representatives from Air Canada did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

But this comes just three months after another Air Canada flight narrowly missed crashing into another plane at SFO when the pilot mistook a crowded taxi way for the runway and came as close as 60 feet to four other planes on the taxi way before pulling up and aborting the landing. A supervisor then used a flashing red light to signal the crew, which is standard protocol, but that was also ignored.

After it landed safely, the Air Canada crew alerted the tower it had a radio problem, Gregor said.

This is the second unsafe incident involving an Air Canada flight.

Another potential catastrophe involving an Air Canada flight was avoided at San Francisco International Airport Sunday night. The flight crew would later tell investigators they thought the taxiway was actually their intended runway.

Federal investigators also determined that the Air Canada plane dropped off the air traffic controller's ground surveillance system radar during its final 12 seconds on approach.
