    Near disaster in San Fransisco, Canada Air 759

    Canada Air 759 A330 lined up on Taxiway Charlie, just right of runway 28R.

    Fortunately everyone realized error, but by the time the engine was up to power they where 59ft alt.
    <10 feet from top of tails of the 4 aircraft on taxiway.

    It is interesting that an highly experienced pilot had to delay his decision to abort its own landing so long. I would expect this to be the center of the enquiry (decision process).
