WASHINGTON — US safety officials said Friday they are investigating a near collision of an American Airlines jet and two military transport planes last month about 80 miles southeast of New York City, the latest in a string of close calls in US airspace during the past year.

American Airlines flight 951 was en route to Sao Paulo, Brazil, about 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 20 when a warning system alerted pilots to an impending collision with the two US Air Force C-17s, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement.

American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said the Boeing 777-200 was carrying 247 passengers and 12 crew members.
