US Airways Express cleared on near-miss

The US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has ruled that the three US Airways Express planes that were reportedly involved in a near-miss incident at Washington’s Reagan National Airport were never on course for a “head-to-head” collision.
The Washington Post had reported that the aircraft came within 12 seconds of a mid-air collision on Tuesday at 2pm. An incident was averted by a controller acted when she realized there was a loss of separation among the planes.
The National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement that it will “investigate the air-traffic-control incident at Reagan National Airport on July 31. It will involve review of communications recordings and radar data, as well as interviews with supervisors and controllers at DCA and Potomac TRACON over the next few days.”
