I was just thinking about this and decided to see if any of you guys have been in any Mid-air collisions. IF can get really busy during the day, especially on the SoCal area. Closest I got to one was 2 weeks ago. Was in a AA 738, 777 came within 100 meters of me. Just wondering.
Never had a colission “mid air”, during approach/landing yes, more like a fender bender 😁
(blame the 747 ignoring ATC for a 360…)
Closest thing to a mid air collision was a parallell landing. Thank god it wasn’t a collision.
Those pesky little F-14 escorts in PG, sure tons
Wow, well your passengers got one heck of a show didn’t they XD
Well i almost had one he flew right above me
Want to experience landing/approach near collisions? Visit klax in playground with no controller!!
First one was on PG. I was a A320 and there was a jetblue 190 closing in. Luckily, we didn’t hit. But it was very close.
Second was a Hawaiian 767 which took off at KSAN. I took off too, the 767 ended up going over me BARELY MISSING ME by a inch.
Check out this request for TCAS, if the devs notice it could help!
On advanced I’ve had no collisions. On playground I’ve had a couple with nimrods while taxiing/landing. On free flight… well all the time!
I usually have collision sometimes when landing and someone takes off the wrong way on unicom.
I had a close call with @JeebakR on advanced 2 months ago.
Not going to tell all of the close calls on PG, too many of them…
Closest to mid air collision was this:
Mid air collision, Advanced, at Singapore Region.
Oh wow. Think your the only person who’s said Advanced.
Well it was an event and he joined plus no ATC.
I see a lot of collisions !
But on the ground
When everyone spawn on the same gate.
I hate that so much, They should have a warning on that gate when choosing your gate, saying its being operated so you have to use another one lol
Some days back,when I was at 39000ft someone desperately tried to fly through me. I had to climb to 42000ft to steer out of the collision.
