Near Miss at 22,000 Feet

Tragedy was narrowly averted on Columbus Day when two aircraft converged at 22,000 feet over New Hampshire's Mt. Washington. The decisive action of the pilot of "Romeo-Romeo" saved many lives.

He backed up and let the jet go by. Vertical separation was estimated to be as little as 5,000 feet.

Hmmm... I would have expected something like this on April 1.
