Incident at E Goose Bay, Labrador (Conflict - loss of separation)


1997-04-10: The F16's departed Goose Bay, eastbound, IFR to Keflavik. The B757's were westbound from Keflavik to various North American destinations. Due to traffic the F16's were delayed in being cleared into an airspace reservation at their requested altitude. The lateral separation required with the 3 Icelandair flights was 60 miles. Due to the delay in clearing the formation to the reservation, the required separation was not maintained in the climb resulting in approximately 56 miles laterally rather than the required minimum. Norwegian Air Force (NAF) 94-97 / 3 Icelandair flights General Dynamics F-16 (4 aircraft in formation)/Boeing B757 (3 separate flights)
