Crossing flights

DL Flight 115 Barcelona-AtlantaDuring our flight back from Barcelona, the pilot came on the intercom to say there was another Delta flight visible off the right side of the plane. Delta Flight 149 Rome-AtlantaI grabbed my camera and headed to a window but couldn't get a clear shot. Another man with a window seat got a great shot of the Boeing 767 heading from Rome to Atlanta and then contacted the pilot of that flight for the return shot he took of our plane. I don't usually get all geeked out about plane stuff, but this was pretty cool. At about 35,000 feet in elevation, the planes were separated by about 1,000 feet vertically and 1 mile horizontally.
