This is a while ago but it has been bugging me now and then.
On September 11 2011 (yes exactly 10 years after 9/11!) I was flying Easyjet 3467 from London Stansted Airport (STN) to Copenhagen (CPH). Scheduled departure was 18:40 local time but the flight was heavily delayed (around 4 hours as I recall) due to another bizarre incident.
Anyway, as we were finally sitting in the plane and taxiing, suddenly the pilot announces that he just got info that another airplane had been heading to land just where we were and had only been some 60 seconds away! A lot of passengers seemed to gasp for air and the pilot sounded quite shocked as well. But there was no other explanation added.
Is there a database of such events so I could look up more about what happened?
I found the flight on FlightStats (sign in required) but there were no real info.
