NEW YORK -- The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a near-miss by two airplanes over New York City.

The FAA said in a statement Friday that a Delta Airlines Boeing 747 arriving at John F. Kennedy International Airport came close to a Shuttle America Embraer E170 departing from LaGuardia Airport around 3:45 p.m. June 13.

The aircraft were "turning away from each other at the point where they lost the required separation," the FAA said. Both aircraft landed safely.
