A report filed to the Transport Canada database shows that an Air Canada Jazz flight had been en route from Halifax to Gander, and was fcleared to descend to 17,000 feet. However, it could not level off and had to drop further, and came close to the Provincial Airlines flight.

“Separation between the two aircraft was 2.5 nautical miles horizontally and 500 ft vertically,” the report said.

Hell, around New York you’re lucky if you’re MORE than 2.5 miles from someone else!
