The paper extends the statistical-probabilistic method of collision probability calculation, which has been limited to parallel, straight line flight paths, to arbitrary flight paths and vehicle shapes. The general formula is specialized to the cases of large relative velocity, non-zero relative velocity, zero relative velocity, and spherical collision surface. The formulas are applied to independent curved landing approaches to parallel runways.
