American B38M and Delta BCS3 at Minneapolis on Jun 14th 2023, near collision between go around and takeoff
Last Update: June 16, 2023 / 19:06:22 GMT/Zulu time
A Delta Airlines Bombardier C-Series CS-300 registration N311DU performing flight DL-1163 from Minneapolis,MN to Santa Ana,CA (USA), was preparing for takeoff.
Tower needed to resequence a departure already holding short of the runway and had that plane taxi along the runway and vacate again and planned to have the next departing aircraft, flight DL-1163 line up runway 30L and be ready for immediate departure. When the B38M was about 5nm before the runway threshold tower instructed the aircraft to be resequenced to taxi onto the runway and cleared the Delta BCS3 to line up for departure, again re-iterating the BCS3 should be ready to go. About 90 seconds later tower cleared the BCS3 for takeoff with no delay on the roll and the B38M for landing, however, about 30 seconds later instructed the B38M to go around intending the B38M to keep right of the departure. The B38M kept to the left of the runway however while climbing out and overtaking the BCS3, the BCS3 climbed through the height of the B38M before the aircraft entered diverging trajectories.
ADS-B data suggest, the separation between the aircraft, both airborne at 23:29:03Z, reduced to about 200 feet vertical and 0.14nm horizontal.
The FAA reported the close call is under investigation by the FAA.
