Malaysia Airlines near-miss: Flight MH136 aborts Adelaide Airport takeoff to avoid incoming plane

A Malaysia Airlines flight departing the Adelaide Aiport in Australia was ordered to abort its takeoff to avoid an incoming Tiger Air flight on Tuesday.

The Tiger Air flight from Melbourne performed a standard “go-around” as its approach to the airport was too high and fast for landing.

Malaysia flight 136 bound for Kuala Lumpur was already accelerating on the runway when the air traffic controllers canceled its takeoff clearance, stating that the Malaysia flight would be ascending underneath the go-around.

The crew stopped the aircraft on the runway and the Tiger Air flight landed safely on its second approach. MH136 resumed its takeoff 25 minutes after the Tiger Air plane landed and arrived in Kuala Lumpur with a 10 minute delay.
