Logan Airport: 17 runway incidents in 14 months

Apparently, the most of any US airport.

The Nov. 29 incident was not as serious as a June 9 close call, when two passenger jets with 381 people on board came within 106 vertical feet of colliding on takeoff, prompting new scrutiny of runway safety at Logan. But it continues a string of runway incursions that is one of the more perplexing in the nation. The 16 incidents between Oct. 1, 2004, and Sept. 30 were double Logan's total for the prior three-year period. Logan, with about 1,250 daily departures and arrivals, is the nation's 17th busiest airport.
