CF-CPQ and TAA Boeing 727 VH-TJA collided at Sydney airport on the night of January 29, 1971. There were 240 people on the two aircraft. The report found the CP Air crew had backtracked instead of exiting while the crew of the 727 was criticised for failing to see the DC-8 when they had time to stop and not adopting a steeper climb-out when they did. The controller was largely exonerated because from his position at night it was difficult to see if the DC-8 was on the runway or the taxiway. The 727 safely landed despite losing hydraulics from a large hole in the belly. No injuries.
