    taxiing out /taxiing in

    1. A near-miss accident was observed by the airport authority when the aircraft taxiing-out from the runway.
    2. A near-miss accident was observed by the airport authority when the aircraft taxiing-in to the runway.

    Are the above sentences grammatical?

    Re: taxiing out /taxiing in

    A near miss by definition is not an accident!
    You can say:
    1. A near miss (incident) was observed by the airport authority when the aircraft was taxiing away from the runway.
    2. A near miss (incident) was observed by the airport authority when the aircraft was taxiing toward the runway.

    I think your in and out are reversed. I would say "out to" the runway and "in from."
