Another mid-air. The following is from the AOPA.org web-site. (I’m not sure if the URL will work for non-AOPA members). CAPS is definitely the answer for this kind of incident.
Crippled 172 lands safely after midair
Nov. 30 Â— A Cessna 172 safely landed at West Houston Airport, Texas, following a midair collision November 26 with a Cessna 150. One-fourth of the 172’s right wing was left hanging down by the impact, and the right main landing gear wheel was knocked off. The aircraft were flying at 2,000 feet in good visibility, National Transportation Safety Board officials told the Houston Chronicle. The pilot of the Cessna 150, 36-year-old Don Lee of Katy, Texas, died after a wing was severed from his aircraft by the impact. His airplane crashed along Interstate 10 just outside of Katy. The pilot of the Cessna 172, Diana Orendorff, spotted the Cessna 150 approaching from behind her left shoulder just before the impact and pulled her aircraft into a climbing right turn. Following impact, her aircraft instantly entered a clockwise spiral dive. Aircraft owner Ed Oppermann then took control, recovering from the dive several hundred feet above the ground, and landed at West Houston on one wheel. The 172 skidded from the runway onto the grass before coming to a stop. Before landing, Oppermann had contacted the airport, declared an emergency, and pinpointed the wreckage location of the Cessna 150 so that rescuers could reach the scene. Neither Orendorff nor Oppermann were injured in the accident, which occurred about 5:15 p.m. local time. Oppermann was able to turn the aircraft only in one direction during the 10-mile flight to West Houston Airport.[View a gallery of additional images.]
