What: US Airways en route from Washington
What: US Airways en route to Washington
Where: Reagan National Airport, Washington
When: July 31, 2012 2:00 pm
Who: 192 aboard
Why: One US Airways plane had been rerouted into Washington’s Reagan international airport. Its route had been changed in Warrenton, Va due to an approaching storm. The problem is that no one apparently told Reagan National and that rerouted plane was scheduled to land into two US Airways Jets that were taking off.

Warrenton, Va ATC changed courses due to weather and wind patterns.

Reagan Airport ATC caught the potential collision 12 seconds before it happened and rerouted the incoming jet.
