The Federal Aviation Administration is currently investigating an incident that could have resulted in “the greatest aviation disaster in history,” according to one expert.

Air Canada Flight 759, which took off from Toronto for San Francisco on Friday, July 7, nearly landed on a crowded taxiway — rather than its intended runway — when coming in for a landing at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

According to the FAA, the Airbus 320 had been cleared to land on SFO’s Runway 28R at 11:56 p.m., but the pilot accidentally approached a parallel taxiway. This particular taxiway, Taxiway C, contained four other aircraft waiting to take off, each fully fueled and filled with passengers.
