Air France Boeing 777 and American Airlines Boeing 737 experienced a near miss over Caribbean
Air France Boeing 777-300 and American Airlines Boeing 737-800 experienced a near miss over the Caribbean Sea. The planes were safely separated after the TCAS got activated.
An Air France Boeing 777 was performing flight to Lima from Paris, when the American Boeing 737 was performing flight from St. George to Miami.
TCAS is an aircraft collision avoidance system that monitors an aircraft’s airspace for other aircraft equipped with a corresponding active transponder. It warns pilots of the presence of any other transponder-equipped aircraft to reduce mid-air collisions between aircraft.
