    The old runway incursion game! I know it well. No one knows the real numbers because they are not reported.

    I handled one that was as close as one comes to an accident that did not happen. It would have killed a lot of people, but since the aircraft missed each other no one reported it.

    The bottom line, if management can get away not reporting it they will.

    Funny thing, there are literally thousands of incursion not reported every year. They occur at non-towered airports. They simply are not reported.

    So it's a game and when two come together it becomes a big deal with a media frenzy and investigations and meetings by all those involved.

    Yes Congressional hearings and NTSB recommendations.

    ...all the management and their minions are counting on being able to retire before any hearings happen. Maybe the "biggly one" needs to clean house before the "big one" happens!!

    Be proactive and fire the swamp!!
