Incident: Cessna 172S, EI-NFW, Ireland West Airport, Knock, Co. Mayo, 28 May 2009: Report No 2009-017

  

SYNOPSIS

 

While an Airbus 320, EI-DVF, was lined up and holding on Runway (RWY) 27, a Cessna 172 was given permission to land on the same runway by the duty Air Traffic Controller.  This landing clearance meant that the Cessna aircraft over flew the stationary Airbus prior to touchdown deep on RWY 27.  This was contrary to Air Traffic Control (ATC) procedures and was not a safe manoeuvre.
