Now that we have flying on the mind:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Two airliners were one minute from colliding when at least one of the planes turned away from the other over the Atlantic Ocean this week, federal authorities said Friday.
The National Transportation Safety Board said it was investigating an incident in which a Delta Air Lines flight and a Russian-registered passenger jet were heading toward each other Thursday north of Puerto Rico when cockpit alarms went off.
The NTSB said the pilot of the Russian plane - a Transaero Boeing 747 - descended 200 feet to 300 feet to avoid Delta Flight 485.
The planes were at the same altitude - 33,000 feet over open ocean - and were “60 seconds apart from occupying the same airspace,” said NTSB spokesman Peter Knudson.
The spokesman describing a midair collision as “[two planes] occupying the same airspace,” recalls the military satellite which, in 1992, registered the Los Angeles riots as a “heat anomaly.”
