FAA investigating Alaska Airlines near-collision

The FAA is investigating another scare in the sky.

An Alaska Airlines 737 jet filled with 145 passengers and five crew members nearly collided with a cargo jet on Tuesday.

At their closest point, the NTSB tells CNN the planes were both at 1,400 feet and a quarter of a mile apart.

Officials say air traffic control did not warn the planes, but Alaska Airlines tells CNN the collision avoidance system alarm on the 737 did go off.
