Tragedy averted, 2 IndiGo planes come face to face
The TCAS or traffic alert and collision avoidance system is an aircraft collision avoidance system designed to reduce the incidence of mid-air collisions between aircrafts.
Similar incidents were reported earlier as well. In January this year, two aircraft came face-to-face after landing at different runways of Delhi's Indira Gandhi International airport. In December 2016, a major accident was averted at IGI airport after two planes, an IndiGo and a SpiceJet aircraft, came face-to-face on the runway. According to reports, an IndiGo aircraft narrowly missed a Border Security Force aircraft over Jammu and Kashmir recently.
