FAA investigates planes' close call in Anchorage

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a close call between two jetliners at Alaska's Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
A US Airways passenger jet that was landing May 21 came within a third-of-a-mile (a half-kilometer) of a Cargolux 747 that was taking off on another runway.
The US Airways flight was coming from Phoenix with 138 passengers and a crew aboard. The Cargolux was leaving for Chicago with a crew of two.
The National Transportation Safety Board is sending an air traffic control specialist from Washington, D.C., to investigate.
