First Lady's Flight Gets Too Close To Military Plane

The FAA is investigating another possible incident involving air traffic controllers. 

This time it has to do with a flight carrying first lady Michelle Obama.  Her plane was forced to abort a landing Monday at Andrews Air Force Base because it came too close to a military cargo jet. 

The FAA says the two planes were never in any danger but officials are looking into whether controller error at a regional radar facility was to blame.
