So, I was flying, cruising, chilling. Then I look on the map, and see someone (josh) at the same altitude as me. I then realise, he’s going between the same way points as me… in the opposite direction. Then:
I personally disagree with this. A community forum is made for people to post their own personal experiences. They should not have to be grouped down to something this specific. And if they should, we would have a category for it.
But that’s just my opinion, and not my call or choice to make. For the topic, that was a very close call! Good thing we don’t have airplane-to-airplane damage (although having that on expert would be awesome!)
Its plain and simple. Since there is already a topic open, where you can post all your Near-Misses and Mid-Air collisions, there is no need to make another topic. No need to clutter the feed with multiple discussion pages, of the same topic, when everyone can post there experiences on one page, Instead of 2-3-4-5 pages of the same subject. Keeps the forum organized.
And you weren’t aware of the impending collision how? You have the map that tells you about the planes around you, and you have your eyes. How did you miss that there was a plane barreling towards you at the same altitude and did not take corrective action about it? I’m perplexed.
