Of they load their kit up on to a drone, and fly it up to where two aircraft are about to safely pass each other. Switch on the system and fool one of the aircraft into diving and the second into climbing.

This could potentially be a lot more problematic in the future when the bags of mostly water are removed from the cockpit.
