The FAA is investigating after two major airliners nearly collided in mid-air

Sharing is Caring!

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has launched an investigation after two planes from major commercial airlines appeared to nearly collide mid-air in an unnerving dash camera video taken by police in Syracuse, New York. Although experts say the flights were not actually on a collision course, based on preliminary evidence, they were for a time flying in very close proximity — just 725 feet apart at their nearest point. The incident happened at around 11:50 a.m. EDT on Monday, as the two regional jets navigated around an apparent traffic control error that initially had one cleared to depart from Syracuse Hancock International Airport at the same time the other was cleared to land on the same runway. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the ordeal, but the FAA is actively investigating the incident and what may have led up to it.
