A Qatar Airways Airbus A350 came close to colliding with a Caspian Airlines McDonnell Douglas MD-83 over Iranian airspace earlier this year.
The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has announced it is sending a team of investigators to the ditching site of Transair Flight 810 off the Hawaiian island of Oahu to coordinate the recovery of the wreckage from the ocean floor.
Investigators have concluded that failures by the crew of a Condor Airbus A320 and air traffic control caused the jet to experience a serious air proximity encounter and terrain alert
The jet was climbing away from Perth when the crew detected the problem
The overrun, which led to the deaths of 19 passengers and two pilots, occurred during a repatriation flight
The widebody came within 2.8nm of an A320 which was landing on a crossing runway
The jet’s automation kicked in to prevent the aircraft from stalling
The jet took out the airport’s localiser and a portion of its boundary wall after a botched take-off
Following the release of the AAIB's preliminary report, Key.Aero analyses the two other occasions when this has happened to a Dreamliner
The incident happened last month on stand while cargo was being loaded onto the Dreamliner
