Flight00New Delhi: Three international flights, with hundreds of passengers on board had a miraculous escape from a mid-air collision on Sunday.

It is said that three foreign airlines – Dutch carrier KLM, Taiwan’s Eva Air, and US-based National Airlines were flying at almost the same level, clearly in violation of mandatory separation. The mishap was averted after multiple auto-generated warnings by the Air Traffic Control (ATC).

As per news agency ANI, the pilots of the three flights will be summoned by the Aircraft Accident Incident Bureau (AAIB).

The US National Airlines from Afghanistan to Hong Kong was flying at 31,000 feet, the Amsterdam-Bangkok EVA Air plane at 32,000 feet and Vienna-bound Dutch KLM at 33,000 feet, it is reported.

Sources in AAIB said that the bureau has the power to call pilots of any foreign airlines in serious cases through International Civil Aviation Organisation, an international aviation body.
