A few seconds, it seems that passenger ships are about to collide.
In the Internet appeared the video of dangerous rapprochement of planes in the Gomel region. Few seconds think the ships about to collide, however, then they intersect and “disagree” in different directions.
Local journalists asked experts to comment on footage taken on January 31. They stilled – air traffic controllers monitor a safe interval, and the ground distance between the aircraft can be determined.
– Interval can be both vertical and horizontal. Horizontal – 10 miles between aircraft, vertical – a thousand feet (300 m). Even very experienced people can not from the ground to determine the height of the aircraft visually, – quotes the head of the dispatch center “Belaeronavigatsia” “BelTA”.
Alexander Bartashevich added that the distance to other vessels defines a special instrument. And if it is insecure – gives a command to the crew to disperse. So does the ground system.
