Canada A319 at Toronto on Dec 25th 2016, right is where left is wrong
Last Update: January 10, 2017 / 22:17:03 GMT/Zulu time
On Jan 3rd 2017 the Canadian TSB reported the separation between the two aircraft reduced to 400 feet vertical and 1nm horizontally.
On Jan 10th 2017 the Canadian TSB released a significant update stating, that AC-467 was on a heading of 150 degrees and was instructed by ATC to turn right to a heading of 040 degrees and intercept the localizer runway 05. The crew read the clearance back correctly, however, initiated the turn to the left instead of right. Just when AC-727 inquired when they would receive their turn to intercept the localizer, both aircraft received a TCAS resolution advisory. The separation between the aircraft reduced to 400 feet vertically and 1nm horizontally before ATC and flight crew were able to correct the situation. The TSB wrote: "The clearance issued to ACA467 may have been intended for ACA727."
