Planes Collide on Runway at Pearson and JFK Airports

Two separate incidents on runways at different airports in North America highlight that even when planes are on the ground, there is a risk of runway accidents causing injury to passengers and crew. Although many people ignore the warnings that when a plane is taxiing on the runway, they must remain seated and wearing their seatbelt, passengers aboard planes at Pearson Airport in Toronto, Canada, and JFK airport in New York, might heed that warning more strongly. Luckily, there were no injuries to any passengers in either accident, but they still show that there are risks for commercial airline passengers whether in the air or on the ground.
