Date: 08 October 2001
Airline: Scandinavian Airlines (SAS)
Flight No.: 686
Aircraft: McDonnell Douglas MD-87
Location: Milan (Linate), Italy
Fatalities: 114:114

Scandinavian SK686, on a flight from Milan to Copenhagen, was cleared to taxi to Runway 36R for departure. At approximately the same time, a German Cessna Citation II business jet (D-IEVX), was cleared to taxi from the General Aviation ramp via taxiway Romeo 5. The Citation mistakenly entered taxiway Romeo 6, entered runway 36R, and at that point was impacted by SK686 which had been cleared for takeoff. Both aircraft broke up, skidded to the right of the active runway, and impacted an airport baggage hangar, which partially collapsed. Weather at the time of the accident was reported as "heavy fog" with a Runway 36R RVR (runway visual range) of 225 meters.
