AA21 was enroute EWR-MDW when it collided with Taylorcraft BL-65 NC24403. The BL-65 had run out of fuel and its occupants had parachuted out. AA21 was struck in the left wing and banked sharply to the left, the crew managed to level the wings by adding full power to right engine and landed wheels up in a farm field 7 mi NE of Saline. The aircraft was repaired and returned to service. It is still registered today as N139D.
