Inquiry into BA planes' near-miss.
Emergency anti-collision systems were activated and both planes were steered apart to avert the potential tragedy. The incident involved an Embraer 145 jet BA4029 carrying 43 passengers from Glasgow and a Dash 8 aircraft BA4058 carrying 22 passengers which was flying from Bristol to Newcastle. The Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), an electronic warning device in the cockpit, was activated and advised both pilots of the actions they needed to take.
