The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has issued subpoenas to the flight crew of an American Airlines flight that was involved in a runway incursion at John F. Kennedy International Airport. The incident, which occurred on February 8th, involved an American Airlines Boeing 777 and another aircraft, both of which were on the same runway at the same time.
The NTSB has also subpoenaed the pilots of the American Airlines flight after they refused to be interviewed by investigators. The pilots reportedly failed to answer questions about the incident, citing the need to consult with their union representatives.
The NTSB has also been investigating the incident, which resulted in a near miss between the two aircraft. According to reports, the American Airlines pilots were involved in a “close call” at JFK Airport and have received subpoenas as a result.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that the NTSB is looking into the possibility that the pilots were negligent in their operation of the aircraft. The Federal Aviation Administration is also reportedly investigating the incident.
The incident has raised concerns about aviation safety and the need for better communication between pilots and air traffic controllers. It is yet to be seen what the outcome of the investigation will be, but the NTSB and other agencies involved have made it clear that they are taking the incident very seriously.
