    A report by Travel and Leisure magazine has ranked Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport among the most dangerous in the country when it comes to runway safety.

    DFW airport, the only Texas airport to make the list, ranked 10th with a score of 2.86 from 61 runway incidents in the last 5 years.  See the ranking here.

    The publication compared 35 of the busiest commercial airports in the country and weighed certain instances on the FAA's Runway Safety Support, namely those which could have resulted in a catastrophic collison against those that had only significant potential for a collison.

    The airport then listed the Top 20 airports.

    In the report, Travel and Leisure cited a 30-day period in 2008 where the airport racked-up 10 near-misses.
