Singapore Airlines flight SQ61 departed Houston in Texas, USA via the INDIE ONE Standard Instrument Departure (SID). The INDIE ONE required the aircraft to maintain 4,000ft or other altitudes as assigned by ATC. However, after departure the B777 climbed above 4,000ft, thus conflicting with another aircraft which was descending to 6,000ft. An air traffic controller noticed the potential conflict and instructed the B777 to descend to 5,000ft. It was estimated that, at their closest, the aircraft were 0.61NM and 200ft apart.
