Wrong Airport Runway Landings


The EAL Radio Show has another great topic “Wrong Airport Runway Landings” in the aviation industry for Episode 328 that airs Monday evening, July 31, 2017. The airline industry has advance high technology and yet one of the most common causes of airport “screw-up’s” is because of two or more airfields lying in close proximity and sharing similar runway alignments and landing on the wrong runway is more frequent than we would like to think.


The National Transportation Safety Bureau (NTSB) issued several statements back in 2014 on "Safety Alert" - highlighting the need for pilots to “check and confirm destination airport" and mentioned recent incidents. Again in 2015, the NTSB issued additional safety recommendations to the FAA. Recently, we heard of one of the famous actors landing on the wrong runway and a near miss accident! Why are there wrong Airport Landings?


Join us for this interesting topic. Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, on July 31, 2017. Call into the show at 1-213-816-1611 or listen in by clicking below to take you to: to listen to this Episode.

“Airline Near Collisions…

Successful Incident or Not!”


The EAL Radio Show has another great topic “Airline Near Collisions…Successful Incident or Not for Episode 329 that airs Monday evening, August 7, 2017. The airline industry has had many videos about crashes, but not many about near collisions and incidents. Sometimes the potential for crashes is more harrowing than the event itself.

One near miss that was successful as far as a collision goes where the Pilot succeeded and did miss another aircraft. However in doing so… Eastern Air Lines Flight 663, a Douglas DC-7, and a scheduled domestic passenger flight from Boston, Massachusetts, to Atlanta, Georgia, on February 8, 1965, after an evasive maneuvers undertaken by Eastern Flight 663 did avoid an oncoming Pan Am Boeing 707 but…according the report, caused the pilot to suffer spatial disorientation and lose control of the aircraft. Flight 663 crashed near Jones Beach State Park, New York, just after taking off from JFK Airport and all passengers and crew aboard perished. Join us for this interesting near miss excellent show with some controller/pilot communications played out by our host/cast.

Please call in at 213-816-1611 at 7:00 P. M. ET as we depart the gate, on July 31, 2017. Call into the show at 1-213-816-1611 or listen in by clicking below to take you to: to listen to this Episode.
