NTSB: Anti-Collision Aids Needed For Large Planes

WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Transportation Safety Board wants to see ground collision warning systems on all large commercial airliners.

The board is recommending that the Federal Aviation Administration require large airplanes to be equipped with anti-ground collision tools, such as a camera system that would give the pilot a clear view of the plane’s wingtips.

This comes after several mishaps at U.S. airports involving planes on the ground. One collision, in July 2011 at Boston’s Logan International Airport, sent a woman to the hospital with neck pain after the wing of a large moving passenger jet clipped the tail of a smaller aircraft in front of it.

No injuries were reported in the two other collisions reviewed by the NTSB.
