Egregious Aviation Safety Violations

Air Canada flight nearly pulls off the Reverse Tenerife, makes it with about 4 feet to spare; https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/aug/03/air-canada-near-miss-picture-shows-how-close-planes-came-to-crashing


For reference, wiki says that the height of a 787 (one of the planes on the taxiway) is 55 feet 10 inches. Vs 59 foot minimum height for the Air Canada plane.

Really, really arrogant, and just convinced that "the air exists for them". Treated the maintenance staff like shit.


Complete contrast to the Japanese I'd encounter.
