Safety Action


Shortly after the incident, the operator of TNU published a memorandum to all company flight crew. It included a description of the event and the lessons to be drawn from it and was published in the March 1999 Issue of Asia Pacific Air Safety under the title "Follow your instincts".

As a result of its response to the occurrence, Airservices Australia held meetings at which the circumstances of the incident, with specific reference to the requirements of sight and follow procedures, were discussed amongst controllers. Additionally, Airservices examined the need for cross-referencing the sight and follow procedures in Chapter 6 Section 4 of MATS with Chapter 8 of MATS. Following this examination, sight and follow procedures were removed and visual separation procedures were revised through Amendment List 23 dated 3 December 1998 of MATS.
