Mid-Air Scare for Two Jet Airways Flights

Two Mumbai-bound Jet Airways flights had a mid-air scare on Friday.  One of the planes got too close to the other plane, closer than the safety distance set by the aviation regulator.  One of the flights was coming from Delhi and the other from Indore and the incident happened at about 1:30 pm.  According to a report from the Mumbai air traffic control (ATC) office to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), one plane strayed from their assigned altitude.

ATC reported that at one point the planes were separated by 7 nautical miles before the cockpit crew of one flight corrected their altitude.  The flight rules indicate that planes should have a minimum of 10 nautical miles separation between them at all times.  The altitude correction came after the pilots of the flights received a warning from the Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), an automated system that warns pilots of other aircraft in close proximity.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
