FAA probing near-miss at Westchester Airport | Bedford NY Real Estate

Federal authorities are investigating a near-miss between two small planes at the Westchester County Airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the incident occurred around 7 p.m. Sunday.

It says the air traffic control cleared one plane for takeoff and the other for landing on an intersecting runway.

The agency said the landing aircraft made a shorter approach than expected and landed just before the other plane cleared the intersection for takeoff.

FAA procedures require that the departing plane clear the intersection before an arriving plane reaches the runway.
