You descended me into an aircraft!
« on: October 31, 2006, 10:39:50 PM »
A clip taken from the ZAB feed on May 16 1730 feed at 12 min 40 seconds in.  Sounds like El Paso approach.

"You just descended us into an aircraft"
<pause>
 "Would have been nice to know about 30 seconds ago"

The controller then issues a traffic alert to other the aircraft I believe was involved in the incident.

Not sure of all of the details, but it does sound like some kind of loss of separation.

Seven miles a loss of separation? Hardly, and I also think the Cessna was VFR, so even less of that.
Having a resolution advisory is not nice, though.

Regards,

He says something like a RAMCA

I know RA is Resolution Advisory, its on TCAS and basically is when TCAS screams at the pilot about another plane. TCAS displays RA and TA (Resolution Advisory and Traffic ADvisory) TAs are just traffic in the area that help increase situatian awarness, RAs are serious.

What the MCA is I have no idea
