8/7: Small plane collision



These are both glider tow planes (the info I have says they are "L5" but I don't know what that means). You can see the tow ropes there. They collided while flying over an airfield in Italy, stuck together, fell to the ground. And the pilots both survived with only minor injuries. Wild!

L5

An L5 is a type of airplane - the L5 is it's US Military designation - Made by Stinson, mostly used as a light observation airplane

Plane crashes

I have one that I should try to find and scan. It is a photo of two planes, a low-wing on top of a high wing (both 2 - 4 seat singles).

Apparently the low wing decended ONTO the high wing and they stuck together! The low wing did the landing and all three occupants of the two planes walked out completely unharmed.

The pilot of the one on top said that he had no clue what happened and had wondered why he was so high off the ground when he touched down.

Wow, the site there says there are fewer than 200 of these still air-worthy -- and now there are fewer than 198... I guess if you have planes this old, there's no reason not to use 'em as glider tow planes.
