An airplane crash that almost happened

Flying in Brazil stays interesting. Sunday night a TAM machine apparently got clearance to land in Porto Alegre because a controller forgot there already was a plane on the runway. Thankfully the pilot of the approaching plane looked out of the window and managed to pull up again before touching down. Now is, I guess, the time to just hope nothing's going to happen. To fly or not to fly is simply not a question for me.
