In this optical illusion, if this were the path of two airplanes flying next to each other, would you as a passenger have anything to worry about?

No. They are flying parallel.

Explanation

You really would have nothing to worry about. They are straight, parallel lines. This optical illusion is taking advantage of a three dimensional technique where all of the background lines meet at one point, thus making the mind see the picture as a 3D model of reality, rather than just lines on a screen. The lines appear to create a tube or tunnel, which would be round. We then adjust for the 3D effect, resulting in the lines appearing curved.
