KUTV found that the Salt Lake City International Airport is one of the most dangerous airports in the United States, something only the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and its air traffic controllers were aware of. The series discovered that near misses and dangerous mistakes at the airport are a regular occurrence as air traffic controllers make errors in their juedgments. Equipment failures also account for some of the errors. During a 15 minure radio outage, seven planes wandered into disaster's way, missing collisions bu just a few hundred feet. (May 6-7, 1996)
