Air New Zealand (Auckland) had a near miss on December 1 with their Boeing 747-400 (ZK-SUJ) operating as flight NK002 400 nautical miles southwest of Los Angeles at flight level 370 (37,000 feet). A Boeing 737-300 (N696BJ) operated by Aviation Partners was on a collision course in the opposite direction. The TCAS system alerted the NZ crew to take evasive action. This is a case for sure for the need for oceanic radar ATC coverage.

One could also say it is proof that the TCAS system is working as planned and provides effective redundancy in those instances where nav/ATC errors occur.

We were flying into LAX last week and heard a Southwest say that he'd had an RA (Resolution Advisory) from his TCAS and that he was stopping descent. We quite often hear the "Traffic, Traffic" voice go when flying into LAX. It's one busy place!!

The 737 was not an air carrier a/c and was conducting "engineering test flight operations." The preliminary NTSB report has more details.

Very Interesting. THe 737 was on a test flight to explore the performance of winglet installation (!) and the 737 was at the max service ceiling, flying into prevailing winds at 370.. The 747 Pilot stated that the 737 also descended as he did and turned as he did! THe TCAS issued a Climb Advisory but he couldn't climb since he was at max ceiling already. His TCAS was set at 12 miles; the 747 was set at 40 miles range.

This is old news and was part of a previous thread - the whole "incident" was explained in that.
