Jets miss each other by 35 feet at O'Hare

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that two planes missed each other on the runway of Chicago O'Hare by 35 feet, not 300 feet as the Federal Aviation Administration originally reported. A cargo plane and a United Airlines jet nearly collided on July 23. Authorities cited controller error as the cause, and this was one of five runway incursions at O'Hare this year.
