I remember most of those, although not the ones with the light aircraft. The Australian light aircraft looked like it might need a bit of panel beating and welding to get its fuselage in working order. Would love to see the state of the prop that did that!
No, it actually happened like that. And I've seen at least two more of those occurances happening too. Light aircraft landing are at relatively low speeds, and in this case the low wing A/C is on top, and can't see the high winged A/C just below and ahead (and vice-versa). They didn't see each other, sort of 'mushed' together, and fell short of the runway. Nobody was hurt.
