3 of 21

Score: 4.41

Runway Incidents: 60

Close Calls: Among the LAX episodes were near misses of arriving and departing planes in both 2006 and 2007.

The Fix: LAX is the venue for what the FAA calls an “ongoing intensive outreach program” to educate pilots, controllers, and vehicle operators on best practices, proper procedures, situational awareness, and other aspects of runway safety.
