Anytime I hear these things I wonder if it involves someone from the A.net community.

May they rest in peace.

This is awful. Does anyone know what the type of the other ac was? Was it the experiemental plane that was doing the 'aerobatic' maneuvers?

First I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to the families involved and to the person who survived. The one thing I would like to know is why TIX tower allowed the a/c to do aerobatics in such close proximity to the airport. At Flight Safety, when we do the Zlin training, we go to a designated practice area, and if weather doesn't allow that, we do the maneuvers well above the class D airspace.

R.I.P .. I've flown to Arthur Dunn before, although this wasn't a runway length related accident, really no room for error on a touch and go from my experience!

Well I made a goof in my post and I apologize. I read wrong and thought it was TIX which is part time class D, and this was actually Dunn and it is an uncontrolled airport.
