Air Canada near miss at San Francisco International Airport

Air Canada flight 759 from Toronto is shown descending toward a taxiway holding four other planes, when it performed a 'go around', narrowly avoiding disaster at San Francisco International Airport on July 7, 2017.

The NTSB said the Air Canada Airbus A320 was cleared to land on runway 28R but instead lined up its approach for a parallel taxiway on which four other aircraft were getting into position to take off.

CCTV footage taken from the ATC Tower shows the A320 approaching the wrong runway, and coming to within just 26ft of the other aircraft on the taxiway.
