Jet and Turkish Airlines 777 in 'near-miss' over London
« on: September 09, 2010, 09:37:38 AM »
A business jet came close to a mid-air collision   with a Turkish Airlines passenger plane after taking off from London   City Airport, a report has said.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) study described the near-miss over London as a "serious incident".
The Citation 525 jet was about 100ft to 200ft below and half a   mile away from the Boeing 777 passenger plane, heading to Heathrow with   232 people on board.
