Near-miss With Swiss A320 And ULM At Brussels Appr

Thu Apr 15, 2004 12:52 am

Hello,

just confirmed: 2 days ago (Monday 12th of April) a SWISS Airbus A320 had a near-miss with a ULM, the SWISS A320 was approaching Brussels Airport on runway 02. According to the pilot the distance was only 20 meters!

They are still looking for the ULM-pilot, he can be fined and he can lose his pilot-license.

Thanks for the link and the information.

It reminds me somehow that although flying is safe, we will never have the possibility to reach a 100% security.

Best regards,
