Significant Factors

Summary

  1. The approach controller used the "sight and follow procedure" in an inappropriate circumstance. That is, the controller transferred the responsibility for separation to the pilot in a situation where the positive application of a separation standard may have been more appropriate.
  2. The approach controller requested the crew of the Metroliner to sight the Jetstream in circumstances where a positive sighting may have been improbable.
  3. The crew of the Metroliner sighted and followed the BAe 146 rather than the Jetstream
