WoW! Someone finally caught onto that joke. I was waiting on someone to respond with something about a Fairy Princess or something. I'm glad my children are grown and gone, except one. He still has a couple more years.


What a pain in the transom.

First off, it is not a "near miss". A near miss is a collision because they "nearly missed"...but actually collided. We would call it a "near collision".... The industry term in aviation now is "near mid air".

Secondly, there is much to learn from a near collision. So we do next time we don't come so close... Human performance is fascinating to me and one of the things I like about being a pilot.....gettting into the "why did he do that" when there were so many more safe options.

Spoken like a pilot I guess....
