2 commercial planes nearly collide over Houston
Air traffic controllers noticed the dangerous flight path and averted a midair disaster
Federal Aviation Administration authorities say air traffic controllers at a Houston airport averted a potential midair collision of two planes.
FAA's Lynn Lunsford tells the Houston Chronicle that an air traffic controller noticed the danger and gave pilots instructions.
Lunsford says they have taken steps to ensure flight crews are aware of the guidelines.
In May, the FAA was investigating an incident in which an air traffic controller's mistake put two planes on collision course.
