According to recent reports, an aircraft taking off from Gatwick Airport (LGW) that nearly collided with another aircraft on April 25, was caused by a fault on the aircraft controller’s part.

Per BBC News, the  UK Airprox Board (UKAB) determined the controller did not scan his radar before “clearing the second pilot to climb.”

The report states: “He should have seen [the first aircraft] ahead.”
