Drivers on Airport Runway

A significant flaw in tech giant Apples Map app has caused controversy by leading drivers to enter an Alaskan airport runway – when it was supposed to direct them to the car park.

Fairbanks International Airport has experienced two separate incidents of motorists entering the restricted runway, leading to obvious potential danger for both the car passengers and airport staff and aeroplane passengers.

The motoring mishap was caused by the map directing its users along the airport taxiway, leading to drivers mounting the runway and causing panic to onlookers.

Apple has issued an apology for the error, and replaced the faulty map with an error message until the issue is resolved.
