Check the Radar

I was approaching runway 08 at San Juan, and a American 757 was approaching runway 10. As you know, the approach paths crossed. And we got unlucky. I missed a midair collision because I wasn’t checking my radar. If I did, I would have gone around. Enjoy my near midair collision.

(I could very well be overreacting.)

Yeah I would say you should be a bit more aware of your surrounding’s after starting the approach, especially at busy airport’s, but they would’ve seen you first well before any risk.

man don’t try to destroy a Canyon Blue, their numbers are getting less and less every day :(

Nice pictures. Definitely try to be more aware next time if you can.
