Saw that in the paper a few weeks ago, think it was over Gatwick.

ATC insisted they were a safe distance apart!!!!

Hate to think what Gatwick ATC call a near miss 😳

Considering the difference in size of the two a/c, I'd guess they were at least 200 meters apart. Not what I'd call safe.

Well. I bet there was an investigation for certain on this. They do appear to be colliding. I would not want to have been in either of them....

i watched a program about south east england's atc. it's pretty much the most packed airspace in the world just due to us being a small island and the density of people coming in/out.

there are so many near misses at gatwick each year it's not even funny - when will they learn?! any human error and there will be a collision soon.

p.s. 15 seconds is the safe distance i've just read.

Just a optical illusion. I'm quite sure that there is more than safe distance between these aircraft. This is just a optical illusion and we can find these daily from everywhere. Here is a few examples

Well here is the truth
Tell me which one is closer

You can read of the effect that causes these optical illusions for example from here

I forgot that telephoto lenses tend to compress things. 🙄

id say illusion too, they could be landing and going missed aproach, looks pretty safe though.
