Piggyback anybody?
20 October 2008 @ 10:39



A light aircraft accidentally landed on top of a plane preparing to take off in a bizarre incident near Dallas, Texas.  No-one was injured in the accident at Northwest Regional airport in Roanoke, Texas on Friday, although both planes were badly damaged.  Reports suggest that the pilots of the aircraft were neighbours and had been talking on the radio just before the crash. It appears they were both under the impression the other would give way before the planes dramatically collided on the runway.  Upon impact the undercarriage of the landing plane, which was being flown by a learner pilot, became wedged in the top of the wing of the other aircraft.  The planes propellors smashed together as they collided, causing considerable damage to both aircraft.

The pilot was certainly on a 'Wing and a prayer!"
