Dec. 11, Plant City, Fla. / Piper Warrior and Cessna 152


At about 16:45 EST, a Piper PA-28-161 and a Cessna 152 collided while on final approach to land at the Plant City Airport. The two airplanes stuck together, with the Cessna on the bottom. The instructor aboard the Cessna successfully landed the two planes in the grass adjacent to runway 10. The two airplanes suffered only minor damage and no one was injured. The pilot of the Piper was flying from Melbourne to Plant City and the Cessnas student pilot was practicing touch-and-go landings. Both pilots said they were announcing their positions and both turned base to final at approximately the same time. The two airplanes collided as they crossed the airport boundary fence.
