    Travel and Leisure magazine ranked the airport based on near collisions and runway incidents.

    According to the report, there were 75 close calls at O'Hare during the past five years.

    Cleveland Hopkins Airport came in second place, with a total of 45 runway incidents followed by Los Angeles International and San Francisco International.

    Chicago's Midway airport was ranked 11th.
