A Boeing 757-200SF, operated by FedEx as flight FX5065, was involved in an airprox incident while on approach to Tel Aviv-Ben Gurion Airport, Israel.
The Boeing 757 was on final approach to runway 12 Tel Aviv-Ben Gurion Airport when a Beechcraft C-12V Huron turboprop plane carrying UN workers took off from the Tel Aviv's Sde Dov Airport.
The Beechcraft C-12V Huron, a Super King Air variant for military use had just departed from runway 21 at Sde Dov. This King Air turned right after takeoff and followed a flight route that was not approved by air traffic control. This caused a conflict with the approaching Boeing 757.
The flight crew of FX5065 aborted the approach and climbed on runway heading. They were then vectored for another approach to runway 12. A safe landing was carried out at 06:58 hours.

The Beechcraft C-12V Huron (Super King Air for military use) 95-0101, operated by the U.S. Army under flight number MFO692 to Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.
