What: Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700 en route from Las Vegas to Burbank
Where: On approach to the Burbank airport
When: Feb 13th 2010
Who: 80 passengers and 5 crew
Why: A small private plane and a SW Boeing came within 5900 feet of a collision, but between ATC and the Traffic and Collision Avoidance System warning, the flights adjusted, and there was no collision, and no wake turbulence problem. However a flight attendant broke her shoulder and another was also hospitalized with injuries that occurred during the evasive maneuvers.
