I-Team: Close Calls On The RiseAn alarming number of airplanes are getting too close and some federal officials want to know why. The CBS4 I-Team first warned you about close calls in our skies back in 2007. After the I-Team's first report aired the problem appeared to improve as safety officials moved to address the issue and make improvements to the nation's aviation safety system.
But now, as I-Team investigator Stephen Stock discovered, a growing number of close calls recently has gotten federal officials' attention. Experts worry that unless something is done to reduce these mid-air close calls disaster could result.
