Plane narrowly misses van crossing runway for barbecue

Written by on August 18, 2018

A video taken from the control tower shows a van crossing a runway at the Springfield-Branson National Airport just seconds ahead of an airliner that was taking off. No one was injured in the June 27 incident. The jetliner, an Embraer 145 operated by American Airlines affiliate Envoy Air, was carrying 50 passengers and three crew. A report filed by Jim Brown, driver of the van, indicates he and two other people were taking the van to an airport employee barbecue. USA Today
