Interactive: Runway hot spots at Hartsfield-Jackson

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Federal Aviation Administration defines a hot spot as "a location on an airport movement area with a history of potential risk of collision or runway incursion, and where heightened attention by pilots and drivers is necessary." Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has a number of these hot spots that the FAA has identified, problem areas where space is tight or aircraft may turn in the wrong direction. "By identifying hot spots, it is easier for users of an airport to plan the safest possible path of movement in and around that airport," the agency states on its website.
