National Transportation Safety Board Recommendations

Posted: Updated:

A number of recent mid-air close calls between commercial airliners is prompting the NTSB to recommend new safety procedures.

The safety hazard identified in the five incidents all occurred when an airplane that was on approach to an airport aborted the landing attempt.

The NTSB is recommending the FAA modify air traffic control procedures to avoid putting planes performing aborted landings on potential collision courses with other planes.
