An Air Canada pilot narrowly avoided a catastrophic accident, when he almost landed on the San Francisco International Airport taxiway instead of the runway. The Airbus A320 was cleared to land on runway 28R at SFO, but instead lined up with a taxiway that parallels the runway. Federal Aviation Administration is now investigating an incident where Air Canadaflight 759 was diverted from landing on a taxiway - filled with four other planes fully loaded with passengers.
On the audio clip from atclive.net, the Air Canada pilot can be heard asking the tower why there are aircraft lights on the runway, and he is told there are no aircraft on the runway.
The air traffic controller then apparently realises the danger of the Air Canada plane crashing into the four aircraft on the ground, and orders the pilot to pull up and make another approach. Another unidentified voice then chimes in to say he's lined up on the taxiway, and the controller tells him to go around. "He's on the taxiway", that pilot says.
