No. 2: Cleveland Hopkins

3 of 22

Score: 5.38

Runway Incidents: 45

Close Calls: While landing at Hopkins in February 2007,
a Delta Connection commuter flight skidded off a snow-covered runway and
smashed through an airport perimeter fence.

The Fix: CLE has completed a major extension of its
main runway, a project that also eliminated crossover with a smaller runway and
provided pilots and air traffic controllers with a less confusing takeoff and
landing environment.
