Obama said the Lufthansa pilot was "speaking Austrian" and "acted stupidly." /s

“Airport controllers believe the EgyptAir jet made a wrong turn, ending up in the path of the German Lufthansa plane”

Was the Egyptian pilot screaming “Allah Akbar!” at the time?

This has shades of the disaster at Tenerife when Pan Am & KLM 747’s collided in fog and blew up.
Here is the full title:
Recently-built German jumbo jet airliner with 286 passengers (who were very shaken and made many mobile phone calls) forced and compelled to make screeching halt with tires smoking and rubber burning (although the tires are rated to for a high level of friction coeffeciant) at JFK to avoid Egypt Air plane which had taken wrong turn on runway due to inattentiveness of both the tower and the pilots who are being checked for drugs and alcohol due to the odd nature of this event

If it was a “near miss”, then they must have collided.
