A Gulfstream IV airplane, N619A, operated by Pegasus Elite Aviation as PEGJET flight 19, was on a visual approach and cleared to land on runway 35 at Philadelphia International Airport, Pennsylvania, USA. During the approach, the airplane aligned with taxiway E. About 0.10 mile from the end of taxiway E, the pilot initiated a go-around. The airplane overflew four air carrier airplanes on taxiway E during the go-around climb. The incident airplane came within about 200 ft of the first airplane on the taxiway. At the time of the approach, the runway 35 runway end identifier lights and the precision approach path indicator lights were out of service. There were no injuries to the seven passengers and crew onboard, and the airplane was not damaged.

The aircraft on taxiway E were an Embraer ERJ-145, an Embraer ERJ-175, a Canadair CRJ-700 and another Embraer ERJ-145.
These were likely operating the following flights (in order of departure time):
PDT4823 [PHL-ALB] Embraer ERJ-145LR N630AE
AA4411 [PHL-SDF] Embraer ERJ-175LR N132HQ
PDT4995 [PHL-ITH] Embraer ERJ-145LR N602AE
AA5300 [PHL-CVG] Bombardier CRJ-900LR N582NN
