1,000 MPH Closure

Here is a picture I took over Southern Colorado. We are at 39,000 feet and this USAir 757 is at 38,000 feet. Our closure rate is in the neighborhood of 1,000 miles per hour! Trust me when I say it is hard to keep the plane in the viewfinder of the camera!

Thanks for your blog Charley. I am amazed at the miracle of flight!

I'm always curious - how do the airlines avoid mid-air collisions? Seems that would be more of a problem than it is.

Good day,
