US Airways Flight 1848 and a Bemidji Aviation Service Beech 99 cargo aircraft came with in 50' to 100' of each other shortly after takeoff from parallel runways 30 Right and 30 Left. Both aircraft were cleared for takeoff and then to make left turns in accordance with noise abaitment practices at this airport. For reasons unknown at this time the Beech 99 did not make the left hand turn. The aircraft passed with in 50' to 100' of each other and the A 320 crew heard the engine noise from the Beech 99. The TACAS warning system on the A 320 alerted the crew who took evasive action to avoid the collision. Both aircraft were flying at about 1500' and were obscured from each other by clouds.
