Beschrijving:
While on approach to runway 05, a private aircraft (a Vultee BT-13, registered NC55312 and owned by the Tuskegee Aviation Institute) landed on top of the DC-3. Both aircraft climbed from 10 feet to 150 feet because the DC-3's tail was forced down by the BT-13, and the pilot had applied power. Both aircraft crashed and burned.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The Board determines that the probable cause of this accident was the failure of the pilot in the BT-13 to fly a standard left hand pattern in his approach to the airport and to Keep a diligent lookout for other traffic."
