FAA Investigating Near Miss Incident over New York City

Delta Airlines(NEW YORK) -- The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a near miss by two planes last week in the skies over New York City.
 
On June 13, a Delta flight arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport from Tokyo got close to a smaller Delta commuter jet taking off about 10 miles away from LaGuardia Airport, according to the FAA.

The two planes, a Boeing 747 and a small shuttle aircraft, were never in danger of colliding.  At their closest point they were a half-mile apart and moving in opposite directions.  Still, it's closer than the required separation, so the FAA says it must investigate.
