mo4ch:>3 passenger flights narrowly avoid mid-air collision over India - report | Mo4ch News

A potentially devastating air disaster was narrowly avoided after three international flights carrying hundreds of passengers nearly collided in the skies above Delhi, India.

In a violation of air traffic control “separation” rules the planes, which belonged to US-based National Airlines, Dutch carrier KLM and Taiwan’s Eva Air, were flying at almost the same level on Sunday.

The Amsterdam-Bangkok EVA Air plane was flying at 32,000 feet the Vienna-bound Dutch KLM at 33,000 feet and the National Airlines flight from Afghanistan to Hong Kong was flying at 31,000 feet, ANI reports.

This tight margin, by aviation standards, sparked multiple auto-generated warnings from Air Traffic Control (ATC).

The pilots of the three planes will now face a grilling from India’s Aircraft Accident Incident Bureau (AAIB) where they will have to explain how the potential disaster nearly happened.
