In full flight at cruising altitude, an aircraft airline company The national, Air Algérie, has a special encounter in the air. This scene was immortalized by the Captain himself from his cockpit.

To avoid any risk of collision in mid-flight, the planes are separated by a sufficient distance by air traffic controllers. There are two types of separation: horizontal separation and vertical separation.

When the horizontal separation is less than the recommended standard, two planes that cross or follow each other in a given area, one above the other, are separated vertically. In other words, both the planes are placed at different heights and levels.

At the beginning of the sequence, we see the giant device moving at high speed in the background of the image, leaving behind a dense trail of condensation. Very quickly, the A380 Air Algerie aircraft arrives, where we can clearly read the insignia of the Emirati company.

With its cruising speed of about 900 km/h, the huge device rapidly passes over the Air Algérie aircraft and immediately disappears from the image. A fascinating sight that we are not used to seeing except in the magical world of aviation.
