At 2:10 this afternoon there was what appeared to be a near midair collision between a Cessna 180J and an AA MD-82 flt 2215 from Dallas/Forth Worth Intl (DFW). The Cessna seemed to have made a wide circle to land. Don't know if the pilot mistook 30L for the GenAv 29 runway but right at that moment the MD was landing on 30L.
All of a sudden the Cessna throttled up and banked a very steep portside as the MD only a few hundred feet slightly above & to the right of it closed in very fast but executed a missed approach. From the angle of the Coleman Avenue viewing lot it was a very close call! The aircraft invovled were N7821K & N443AA.
