On 8 October 2011, a breakdown of separation occurred between a Boeing 737-8FE and a Gulfstream IV. Both aircraft were under radar surveillance and subject to an air traffic control service. The aircraft were on reciprocal tracks on air routes that intersected about 35 NM (65km) north-east of Armidale.

The ATSB identified a number of human factors and individual work processes that contributed to the occurrence.
