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.

Having dealt with Indian pilots when I was working on sailplanes, that is likely an "official" estimate.

 

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.
