Its sooooo nice that they told us how to say Cirrus, a lesson from the news paper on how to speak. LOL Just another high wing versis a low wing. Its easy to do and isnt the first time either. Glad all was ok and kept there wits about them to fly it untill it stops.

Woops looks like it was the other way around after finding the pix, Cessna on top, hmm bad pilot bad instructor.

From the sounds of it, the Cessna was climbing. The Cirrus may have been overtaking. Don't be too quick to blame the instructor in this case.

You better read it again. The csssna lost it's right wheel as it poked thru the windshield of the cirrus. That puts it it on top.

Reporter, "... and the plane landed on the right front wheel..." Good LORD. We need a full investigation into the stupidity of reporting aviation incidents.

I'd say there was a loss of SITUATIONAL AWARENESS by somebody. Glad they are all OK.

@JW Wilson: would you please post a link to the story where you found this as it is not in the posted story or in the link sent below by biz jets. Just curious

10-4 0n that. I f you are operating VFR and in uncontrolled airspace as the story says, you are supposed to have your eyes open.

I wonder how many folks you sent to the book to find out what CAVU meant.lol It ain't hardly used anymore. Only an older pilot or military man would probably know what you are talking about.lol

Well, both pilots did a good job of getting down. From the link above that bizjets posted, it looks like the Cirrus went in first and the Cessna in behind him. I'd have to say that that he had a huge wakeup call and probably needed clean pants.The instructor did real good holding up that right side on the Cessna. I hope that student took notice and paid attention cause that was a classic example of "It can happen to me".

He's just a pup.lol. Pretty sharp for a pup though. Bad cold and partly cloudy yesterday. CAVU here all day, got up in the 50's, supposed to hit 60 tomorrow. Personall, I hope the ground hog was right this morning.lol

All things considered, not a bad landing.... Wonder if they got their wheel back :)

And they seemed to think that it did.

Which right front wheel? The inboard, or outboard, right front wheel? I think the anti-skid was on too, and the tire was 2 psi low... Just kidding Preacher.

Ooops. Couldn't the paper at lease used stock photos of the aircraft involved, rather than pulling something of of Google Images, or where ever they found that photo?
