This happened on Wednesday June 27, when a runway incursion occurred at Springfield-Branson National Airport. The van was not a civilian van but an airport operations vehicle known as "VAN 7" as it crossed runway 14 while an Embraer 145, operated by Envoy Air was on its takeoff roll with 57 passengers aboard. The reason it crossed the runway and almost killed everyone on board? The employees were late to a BBQ. Seriously. That was the reason. We have a serious problem going on at airports in the country right now!
