We just talked the other day about the near collision of two planes at Newark Airport, and now word comes that a similar scenario happened at Houston’s Bush Airport.

The planes in Texas were not as close a the ones at Newark; they passed within .87 miles of each other while the planes at Newark passed within 400 feet of one another.  When we brought the subject up on the air, I was surprised at how many people have been involved in close calls on aircraft; we even heard from a man who was on a plane that was starting to land and then had to pull up because there was already a plane on that runway- that’s a close call.
