Watch the short video of a runway incursion on a dark, foggy night at Providence, RI that nearly resulted in a mishap. Address the situational awareness of the three main players – tower, the United flight, and the pilot cleared for takeoff. Discuss data-link systems such as ADS-B and military JTIDS and the impact these systems have on situational awareness for both pilots and controllers and how such systems could have been used to enhance everyone’s SA, potentially preventing this incident. Also, assess any limitations or disadvantages of such systems.
Write a post addressing the questions above. No research or citations are required – I just want your opinion about what you heard and saw.
