Just for reference, mach 1 is ~ 760 mph.

Two planes approaching each other head on at mach 0.9 is quite rare (flight paths prevent this, plus the fact that this speed is in the "this is going to tear your wings off" overspeed zone for most civil aircraft) and the old rule of the sky of "both aircraft turn to your right" would likely prevent accidents in any case.
