  1. Did the Air Traffic Controller give permission fo Singapore Airways to enter Runway 03, & even if he did, did the Captain & or Co-Pilot not look at the approach of EK-420 about to land or hear the Radio Conversationon> Both aircraft would have been on the same Radio CHANNELL, & IT IS GOOD AIRMANSHIP, FOR A PILOT BEFORE ENTERING OR CROSSING AN active RUNWAY, TO LOOK BEFORE ENTERING?
    The landing aircraft has priority to land over the Singapore Airlines, & the ability of the Captain & Co- Pilot of Singapore Airlines is questionable. This would surely result in an Incident report by the EK-420 Captain, & if so, what action will be taken by the Perth Airport authorities or Department of Transport WA? Well done Captain of EK-420 for avoiding a possible disaster, with so many lives at stake.
