Watch: Exclusive animation reenacts Air Canada plane’s near-disaster at SFO

Here's a cool/alarming animation from the BANG websites created by Pai (with reporting by Matthias Gafni) of the recent near-miss at San Francisco International. A Canadian Air jet began its descent on a taxiway where four other jets were waiting to take off.

For the Warriors second championship in 3 years, Jeff Durham with the assist/slam-dunk/rebound. The illo was almost scrapped when the Dubs failed to sweep, but, with some quick mods, it was saved. Still plenty of post-playoffs Warriors stories hitting the BANG websites every day . . .

Food for thought: Lesley Stiles resumes writing BANG's Produce Pick column in the Eat/Drink area/section (featuring Dave Johnson's watercolors), so check back every month for new ones:
