Regarding why the Hawker pilots didn’t respond to multiple stop instructions from ATC, a comment in another forum noted that the operator of N269AA, DuPage Aerospace, also operates a Hawker 900XP, N416RR. On several occasions the Hawker pilot used the call sign Romeo Romeo inadvertently. The theory goes that the Hawker crew had recently operated N416RR and had that call sign “top of mind” (as KJP would say). In other words, the Hawker crew was listening for instructions for RR rather than AA. Not much of a theory but there you have it.

None of this explains how the phantom takeoff clearance was generated sans read back.

One other interesting note: the Citation Mustang involved in the collision was N510HM. DuPage Aerospace operates a G500, N501HM.

It does not get any closer than this. I can't remember hearing about commercial planes clipping during take off/landing. Taxi or ramp, yes but on the go.
When does the NTSB usually issue a preliminary report?
This is the only one that comes to mind. Misheard/misinterpreted clearance by the DC-8 crew.
