Two 747s Nearly Collide

October 27, 2013 by  

Two 747s Nearly Collide, IT WOULD have been among the worst disasters in aviation history, and authorities are baffled about what went so wrong.

Two Boeing 747 aircraft, carrying a combined 1000 passengers, almost crashed over Scotland after all four pilots accidentally turned the planes onto a collision course, the Daily Mail reports.

The transatlantic planes were preparing to cross the ocean when an air traffic controller on the ground noticed they were converging on each other.

The plane on the left was ordered to go left, and the plane on the right was ordered to go right, to avoid crossing paths.

But the pilots aboard both planes misinterpreted the instructions and did the opposite.

A midair disaster was only avoided at the very last second, when the four pilots physically saw the other planes and took evasive action. One plane climbed in altitude while the other dived.
