    An Atlas Air Boeing 747 Freighter nearly became a casualty after if flew within 670 feet of a mountain in Hong Kong recently. The incident happened to a Boeing 747-8F on climbout from Hong Kong International Airport back on September 24th. Air traffic control informed the crew that the aircraft was off track, and told them to turn left to resume the standard instrument departure (SID). This was followed by a request to "expedite the climb to 5,000ft.". The Atlas Air freighter is registered N856GT.
