Footage has emerged of the moment three planes were involved in a near miss at Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport.
The event involved two Qantas 737s (flights QF449 and QF819) which were both forced to abort landings to avoid a collision with a third plane. Emirates UAE405 was late in taking off from an intersecting runway. As it gathered speed, a Qantas plane appeared on the radar behind it, ready to land on the same runway. The two Qantas crews were forced to perform a “double go around”, in order to avoid a collision, with one of the Qantas jets given permission to fly at an unsafe altitude.
