A and I Classic 122 Chicago (Nano)


On 8 August 2011, an aircraft was given take off clearance from runway 32L at O’Hare without the controller making the required check for potentially conflicting arrivals to runway 09R which pass over the runway. When the controller realised that the departing aircraft would conflict with an aircraft approaching 09R, he told his aircraft to “stay low” and the runway 09R controller to send his aircraft around. Radar data indicated that the 135 on go around had crossed runway 32L about 125 feet above and just over 100 metres in front of the departing 145.
