A U.S. military aircraft and an Israeli passenger plane nearly collided over Eilat.

A C-130 Hercules aircraft flying from Bahrain to Jordan and the Arkia plane came within two miles of each other, according to reports.

The military aircraft tried to land at the Eilat Airport believing it was the King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba. The Israeli control tower helped the U.S. plane make it to Jordan.

It was the second time in two weeks that there has been a near-miss over Eilat.
