A Learjet crosses in front of a landing Embraer jet at Boston's Logan International Airport
This screenshot shows a portion of the freeze-frame image captured from a video taken by a jump seat pilot on a JetBlue Embraer E190 landing on Boston Logan International Airport's Runway 4R on February 27. The ghostly image of the Hop-A-Jet Learjet is difficult to see as it takes off on the crossing runway (Runway 9) after its crew was instructed by ATC to line up and wait. © NTSB
