MASCOUTAH, Ill. (KMOV.com) -

An Allegiant Air flight from Las Vegas became scary for some passengers when it got close to another plane, passengers say.

Allegiant Air Flight 490 was flying from Las Vegas to Mascoutah when the FAA said it came within one mile of another plane. The FAA said it did not instruct any emergency action.

General FAA rules require planes to be at least three miles apart horizontally or 1,000 feet apart vertically.

Passengers said the plane suddenly made a dive. It landed safely at Mid America.

Nobody was injured.
