The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a close call at Boston Logan Airport after a plane was forced to abort its landing to avoid crashing into another aircraft.
The incident happened around 4:15 p.m. on Thursday. Delta Flight 1386 from New York's LaGuardia Airport had to circle before coming in for a landing because American Airlines Flight 349, heading to Dallas, entered the same runway.
The Delta plane eventually landed safely on the runway.
Two planes did collide on a Logan runway eleven months ago. The wing of a Delta jet clipped another Delta plane, severing its tail.
No one on either plane was seriously hurt and investigators later ruled that the incident was an accident.
In Thursday’s incident, the American Airlines flight did takeoff a short time later for Dallas.
