NEED TO TALK"
On Saturday, the crew of United Flight 889, a
Boeing 777 with 251 passengers and 17 crew, reported they came close to
a Cessna 182 while on initial climbout from San Francisco International.
As the airliner took off, the tower controller warned the pilot of the
182, who reported having the 777 in sight, to get behind the airliner.
The encounter set off the TCAS in the 777, and the crew was clearly not
amused. The exchange is in the same order, but we've edited out
extraneous transmissions and gaps.
