Incident at Calgary, Alberta (Conflict - potential)
1997-03-12: CMM 612 executed an overshoot of runway 16 from approximately one half mile on final. CDN 677 aborted take-off runway 16 due to the overshooting aircraft. CMM 612 was late calling the tower (approximately 4 miles final) and very fast on final due to strong west winds aloft. The tower elected to overshoot CMM 612 due to CDN 677 on the runway. UPDATE: A Canada 3000 A320 was on final approach to runway 16 at Calgary and the crew had been requested to call by the outer marker. Before they reported by the marker, a Canadian 737 was cleared for take-off from runway 16. The call by the marker was delayed, and the winds aloft resulted in a higher than normal ground speed. The A320 pilot elected to overshoot and the airport controller instructed the pilot of the B737 to reject the take-off from a speed of about 80 knots. The B737 taxied back for take-off and the A320 did a circuit and landed without further incident. C-GVXB, Canada 3000, had 7 crew and 168 passengers on board. C-GQBB, Canadian Airlines, had 6 crew and 101 passengers.
