A new report out this week from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) sheds light on a deadly mid-air collision near Newberg, Oregon, that took place on Tuesday, October 25.
The pilot of the downed plane, a 58-year-old man from Beaverton, died in the crash.
Aboard the other plane was a pilot and a trainee. They survived after making an emergency landing in a field near Champoeg State Park.
Before the mid-air collision, the 31-year-old Beaverton flight instructor in the other plane was training a 23-year-old man from Hillsboro, reports News Channel 8, Portland.
The instructor and his student had just conducted a series of maneuvers, including a briefing in the procedure for a simulated emergency descent while taking various turns.
At about that time, the pair noticed something coming toward them. They initially thought that it was a flock of geese. It was not until later that their realized that their plane had collided with another plane.
“He [the flight instructor] instructed the pilot receiving instruction to initiate a left descending turn in an effort to avoid the observed traffic,” the NTSB report said, and the student made a 10- to 20-degree heading change.
The instructor immediately took control of the airplane and made the emergency landing.
