Um the terminal pushback tarmack is not the runway Fox. Ignorant idiots.

Is it sweeps again? Or do they just need to put ten times as many ads on the website to stay afloat.

Another sensationalized headline from TKC that is completly misleading.

Alright, I'm embarrassed for Fox 4. Two mistakes in the first paragraph! The airplanes were on the ramp, not the runway (huge difference) and the ground crew was pushing the offending airplane. Pilots don't taxi backward when there is a threat of such a collision.

If this plane had been going to a city with a new airport terminal and an operating streetcar line, this would have never happened!
The innovation capital of the world!!

At least in KC instead of throwing the broken airplane away, we can recycle it one piece at a time in the new recycle bins across city government.
