Today on PG SoCal, a plane decided to land on a red runway while a plane was taking off.
Next, I bring my Cessna 208 onto the runway to wait until the plane finally expedited. The Thomas Cook plane didn’t expedite when he had a chance, and I think, “Alright, I’ve had enough, this idiot shouldn’t have landed, there’s no ATC, I’m just going to fit on the extra runway.” Believe me, it was worth it, I didn’t hit the T Cook plane, and maybe I got messed up, but I was safely in the air. Was this the correct thing to do? What would you do if an idiot decides to land in a headwind and then doesn’t expedite, takes his sweet time, making sure he has to go all the way to the end. I mean, you’re on a RUNWAY, you can go 80 knots on a RUNWAY and slow down.
