A Boeing 747-8KZF freighter operated as NCA/KZ134 from Narita to Anchorage faced to a near miss event during the approach to Ancorage, at about 37 km west of the airport and 6500 ft. Recieving a TCAS advisory and/or warning, KZ134 turned right to avoid a small airplane with visual contact. The least distance of two planes was about 3000 m in horizontal and 200 ft in vertical. The freighter resumed the normal approach after passage of the small plane, and carried out a safe landing about 10 minutes later. The small airplane was not identified at the moment. The Japanese Civil Aviation Breau JCAB classified this occurrence to a serious incident, however, the investigation will be carried out by NTSB, USA.
