Hello all,

I stumbled across this clip :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-P8-kNjCb5k&t=0m41s

You have to watch it at the 00:41 mark.

This is completely crazy to me: does anyone have any insider info on what happened there? Vid doesn't show the aftermath, it being a fail compilation and all ...

Thanks


Cheers

Looks like either intentional formation flying, or accidental convergence while flying VFR.

I am sure this was on here recently, its about 3 weeks since i read about it.

One aircraft landed on the beech (the one that was filming) and the other managed to limp to the airport if i remember correctly. A bit of searching on the net should bring up the full video from the aircraft that landed on the beech. Somehow they got there wings locked together.



There isnt really a dark side to the moon, as a matter of fact its all dark!

Wow thanks everyone.

Crazy that this could happen in very good weather conditions, good visibility and all. You could see that plane coming from FAR away and why would the highest plane just try to fly over the lower one ? Very strange !

This happened the 8th of september during election season with planes flying for the SP and the CDA political parties. For ease of reference I shall refer to the planes as SP1 (banner 1), the photoship (SP2) and CDA (banner plane that got hit).

The photoship was trying to make photos of SP1 flying at roughly the same altitude to his right. The CDA plane was flying a bit lower to the right of the photo plane.

Autorities are still investigating so we will have to await an offical verdict. From the movies it is clear the pilot of the photoplane was facing the sun making it harder to see the CDA plane flying a bit lower and slightly to the right. The photographer probably did not notice the CDA plane either as he was preoccupied with SP1. In the second movie linked below you can see the SP1 pilot pointing to the CDA plane. This warning might have been misinterpreted by the photoplane as a request to go down to get photos from another angle. This however is purely speculation on my part!

Here's some more footage, including footage of the two planes seperating at low altitude over the beach (1st vid) and footage from inside the cockpit (2nd vid)

The planes involved where a Husky (PH-PHX / CDA) which made a succesful emergency landing on the beach near Wassenaar. The photoship was a Cessna 172 (PH-SBM), it made a succesful emergency landing at Rotterdam airport. The other plane (PH-LRM / SP1) also landed at Rotterdam.
