Planes come within 1.5 miles of each other

AirplaneA Spirit Airlines jet had a close call in Michigan.

Flight 313 had just left Detroit Sunday evening, and was climbing, when a traffic controller saw a skydiving plane on the screen, just south of the Spirit jet near the town of Tecumseh.

The Spirit pilot notified the tower that he could see the other plane, and he was able to take the plane into a 1,600-foot drop, and steer clear of a collision.

The planes came within a mile and a half of each other.

No one was hurt.
