Delta Airlines Flight 1386, an Airbus A319, was very near touchdown on runway 4R when air traffic controllers (ATC) quickly radioed for them to ‘go around’, or abort the landing.
One of the passengers aboard the Delta flight said she asked the pilots just how close they came to the other plane and according to her the reply was “300 feet”.
The FAA is launching a full probe in to the incident.
Delta Airlines Flight 1386 was inbound from New York’s LaGuardia Airport and American Flight 349 was bound for Dallas Ft. Worth (DFW).
