    Two planes nearly collided on the runway while taking off from New York

    The US Federal Aviation Authority has opened an investigation to determine what went wrong and establish possible sanctions.

    Two planes that were preparing to take off from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York (USA) were about to collide last Friday in an incident caused by a runway incursion.

    The incident occurred when a flight DL1943 of the airline Delta bound for Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) began its takeoff maneuver and another American Airlines plane crossed on the same runwaywhile preparing to start flight AA106 bound for London (United Kingdom).
