Early last month, 11 airport and ATC officials went on trial in connection with Italy’s worst aviation disaster: the Oct. 8, 2001 collision of a Scandinavian Airlines MD-87 and a corporate Citation CJ2 on a runway at Milan Linate Airport in thick fog that killed 118 people. The group is accused of negligence in the operation of the airport (AIN, November 2001, page 16).
