Language in Air Transport Accidents
The 1977 PAN Am Flight 1736 and KLM Flight 4805 Runway Collision
Although the usual terminology was used between ATC and the pilots confusion still arose due to misinterpretation2,due to language problems. The parties involved were speakers of Dutch and Spanish and although they used proper standard English it was not their native language. A good example of confusion is seen when the pilot of Pan Am was told to leave the runway on Taxi way three and the ATC had to repeat this instruction to the crew of Pan Am as the pilot actually heard 1st Taxi way on the first transmission of directions3 .They were 583 fatalities in this crash.
