It's all looking a bit LAX

It also happens to be a very good article on the problems at Los Angeles International Airport -- LAX.

”Unless safety improved, warned the office bluntly, there was a high risk of a catastrophic runway collision occurring in the US.

Airlines reported 65 incursions, the most, at LAX, America's second-largest international airport after JFK International in New York.

The trouble-prone airport, warned the
Los Angeles Times, is the US headquarters of potential disaster."
