Aug. 15, Deerpark, La. / Air Tractor AT-502 and Schweizer G-164B


At 13:30 central time, an Air Tractor AT-502 and a Schweizer G-164B, both agricultural airplanes, collided in flight while landing at a private airstrip near Deerpark. The Air Tractor pilot suffered minor injuries and the Schweizer pilot was not injured. The Air Tractor was on a straight-in approach for landing north at the private airstrip and the Schweizer was inbound from the west for a north landing. The Schweizers propeller struck the top of the Air Tractors fuselage, aft of the cockpit when they were about 60 feet agl. Both airplanes struck the ground together about a quarter-mile short of the runway.
