The Federal Aviation Administration has issued orders that control supervisors will manage the arrival and departures of airplanes carrying the vice president and first lady, The Washington Post reports.

On Monday, a Boeing 737 carrying Michelle Obama got too close to a massive military cargo jet as both planes were trying to land at Andrews Air Force Base. The FAA has said the First Lady was never in any danger.

The directives come at a time when th he National Transportation Safety Board, which began investigating mistakes by air traffic controllers and pilots last year after error rates spiked, said Wednesday that it will investigate the incident, the Post said.

The nation's air traffic system has come under fire as controllers have been found sleeping on the job; two were fired for doing just that earlier this week.
