So while doing a flight from Tokyo to Hong Kong, I was probably an hour or 2 away from Hong Kong. That is when I saw an aircraft approaching me from a distance. As we got closer, It was clear he was going to get super close. That is when he got very close but not like wing to wing. We did maintain a safe distance so don’t worry. Here is the image.
A high altitude game of chicken between two rivals. I love it 😂
Good thing there will be a TCAS (As per staff posts) in the future. 😂
I had the same encounter but closer, it was like we were flying the same flight plan, and from a distance away I saw a plane 10 nautical miles away from me, same altitude. Then
I went onto my map, and it looked like we were nose to nose, so then I had to think fast, turned off nav mode, and make a quick turn right, when I did that he was on the pin point of running in to each other, but at the correct timing I had done that simple turn. Believe it or not, it only happened yesterday, and on expert server too.
Wow. Good thing you didn’t hit him. Sometimes things like that can be a little intense
Not sure what your standards of a “safe distance” are, but one of you guys went against the age-old ‘cruising altitude-direction’ rule. Cool photo anyways :)
RIP minimum separation, lol.
Yeah I know. I was a bit distracted too so I didn’t know what to do.
“When two aircraft are approaching each other head on, or nearly so, each pilot shall alter course to the right.” —Our friends at the FAA 😂
Remember that, lol.
Jkjkjkjkjk you’re good 😅
Lol I’ll remember that 🤣
I can send you an image if you want
Sure you can send me an image :)
Actually I made a post if you go to the home page, you will see a post saying “close call on expert server” click on that and there are your images ;)
