The Federal Aviation Administration said Saturday a pair of commercial jetliners got closer than regulations allow on Thursday in the skies near George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. The FAA said in a statement that it was investigating Thursday night's "loss of required separation" between planes in airspace controlled by Houston Terminal Radar Approach Control. The FAA said Athat at 6:51 p.m., the pilot of Singapore Airlines Flight 61 took off and did not level off at an altitude of 4,000 feet as required. The statement said, "An air traffic controller noticed the deviation and issued traffic alerts and instructions to the pilots of both aircraft."
