An American Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N191AN performing flight AA-980 from Miami,FL (USA) to Salvador,BA (Brazil), was instructed to line up and wait on runway 27 and was advised traffic would be landing on (crossing) runway 30, the controller subsequently cleared AA-980 for takeoff from runway 27.

An American Eagle Embraer ERJ-145, registration N623AE performing flight MQ-3455 from Tallahassee,FL to Miami,FL (USA), was on final approach to Miami's runway 30 and was cleared to land on runway 30.

About 77 seconds after the controller had issued the takeoff clearance to AA-980, the controller cancelled the takeoff clearance and instructed MQ-3455 to go around in the same transmission.

AA-980 rejected takeoff, MQ-3455 went around. MQ-3455 positioned for another approach and landed safely, AA-980 vacated runway 27 via taxiway T5 (the first exit to the right, a high speed turnoff for runway 09) and had the brakes checked before departing again about 20 minutes later. Both aircraft reached their destinations safely.

The NTSB reported that 77 seconds after issuing the takeoff clearance for AA-980 the controller cancelled the takeoff clearance and issued a go-around instruction to MQ-3455 just at the same time as the Airport Surface Detection Equipment issued an alert. AA-980 was just passing through the intersection runway 27/runway 30 when MQ-3455 overflew the intersection, the vertical separation reduced to approximately 160 feet. The NTSB is investigating.
