On Monday October 8, 2001 a private Cessna, taxiing out of a lateral
runway where it should not have been at all, hit an SAS MD80 as it
took off, sending it ploughing into a hangar and causing 118 casualties.
The accident - the worst in the history of Italian civil aviation
- was apparently due to a human error (made by the Cessna pilot) as
well as to the fact that the airport's ground radar was not operational.
The city of Milan declared a day of mourning.
