Description

WABC-TV Channel 7 Eye Witness News investigated why two foreign 757 jumbo jets nearly collided on the JFK Airport in New York in June of 1998. The investigation revealed that this near-miss and an Avianca jet crash that killed 73 people 10 years ago "resulted from foreign pilots inability to clearly understand English, the international language of aviation."
