A passenger jet taking off from Gatwick Airport was involved in a near miss with another aircraft, according to an official investigation.planeThe UK Airprox Board said the incident on 25th April involved two Airbuses.

They say the miss was caused by the air traffic controller not scanning his radar properly, but that emergency systems would have prevented a crash.

Some experts think that the skies over UK airports are already congested, leading to worries of an actual collision occurring.
