    || Changes urged after 5 near airline collisions ||

    Fascinating indications and near misses, let's hope some action will be taken and integrated into new, better and safer traffic control procedures.

    I wonder if that NC one was the flight I was on with a layover at Charlotte. We were landing and almost ready to touch the ground when out of nowhere the plane immediately pulls up and starts climbing. Those few minutes to get higher up felt like 30 minutes with no one knowing what was going on and no mention from the cockpit. They finally came on and said that although we were cleared for landing, as we were coming in the pilots noticed a plane still waiting to take off. Instead of landing on top of them, we circled around and waited for another clearance to land that didn't involve plane piggybacking.

    This sort of flight safety has little to do with delivering to the public the feeling of being safe, so there's a different metric as to whether this will happen.

    If there is even the hint of the airlines losing $$$ through easing of traffic (read: deletion of flights), nothing is going to happen. If something can be done cost-free (such as reducing minimum space from 2,000 to 1,000 feet in the air), then something will happen.
