Source: Two planes fly within 30 metres of each other

Investigators at the Federal Aviation Administration are looking into the cause of an incident that almost resulted in a mid-air collision over New York eleven days ago. The two planes apparently came within 30 metres of each other, according to one source.
The near-miss on the afternoon of June 13 involved a Delta Airlines Boeing 747 arriving at Kennedy Airport, which “lost the required amount of separation” with a Shuttle America Embraer E170 departing LaGuardia.
“The two aircraft were turning away from each other at the point where they lost the required separation,” the FAA said.
Both aircraft later landed safely.
