Case Study: JFK Mishap Renews Focus on Taxiways A low-speed ground collision between an Air India Ltd. jet and a JetBlue Airways Corp.JBLU +2.60% plane next to a terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport could renew calls for steps to prevent such tarmac hazards. Figure 1: Scene of a 2012 ground collision at Nashville, Tenn.; U.S. regulators want devices built into planes to prevent fender-benders on the tarmac. The taxiway accident, which didn't result in any injuries, is the second time a bigger jet has clipped the tail of a smaller plane near gates at JFK. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, early Saturday the wing of an arriving Air India Boeing BA +0.67% 777 rolling to its gate hit the horizontal stabilizer of a Jet Blue Airways Corp. Airbus A320 that was pushing back to depart. An FAA spokeswoman said the aircraft weren't being directed by air-traffic controllers when they bumped into each other. The FAA is investigating. The previous ground collision at JFK was in April 2011, when a wing tip of a taxiing Air France AF.FR -2.54% A380 superjumbo jet struck the tail section of a Comair regional jet waiting to park. The National Transportation Safety Board urged U.S. and European regulators six months ago to mandate installation of ground-collision prevention devices, such as wingtip cameras, on larger jetliners to help pilots avoid such problems. But there hasn't yet been regulatory action or positive industry response. Contd… (c) UPES, Not for Reproduction/ Sale

Notes ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ Aviation Safety & Security Management In making its nonbinding recommendation in September 2012, the safety board listed two other serious U.S. taxiway accidents, in Chicago and Boston, that have occurred since 2011.Safety experts say cameras are essential because pilots of most wide- body jets can't see the wing tips of their planes without opening a cockpit window and sticking their heads out to scan for obstructions. Pilots and air-safety officials have said collisions on taxiways and around gates, though they occur at low speeds and typically don't result in injuries, are nagging safety problems. They are bound to get worse as more wide-body planes – including Airbus A380 superjumbos and stretched versions of Boeing 777s – manoeuvre around increasingly busy airports.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
