Close Call: Planes Nearly Collide Over NYC
There was a scary situation above New York City a week ago when two planes came dangerously close to colliding, Laura Ingle reported on America Live this afternoon.
Here's more from Associated Press:
A Delta Air Lines Boeing 747 arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport came close to a Shuttle America Embraer E170 departing from LaGuardia Airport at around 2:40 p.m. on June 13, the FAA said in a statement Friday.
The planes were about a half-mile apart horizontally and 200 feet vertically, the FAA said. The required separation is 3 miles horizontally or a thousand feet vertically.
The FAA said the aircraft were "turning away from each other at the point where they lost the required separation." Both aircraft landed safely.
