Narrative:
A student pilot and flight instructor (CFI) in Piper PA-44, N7152Y, departed on an instructional flight. About 24 minutes later, a pilot and three passengers in Piper PA-28, N4258T, departed from the same airport on a personal sightseeing flight. After their departures, radar service for each airplane was terminated. Visual meteorological conditions (VMC) prevailed in the area. Later, the PA-44 was observed flying southbound, paralleling a beach, about 1/2 to 3/4 mile offshore over the Atlantic Ocean. At about the same time, the PA-28 was observed to turn to a westly heading. The two airplanes converged, and a collision occurred at about 600 feet mean sea level in uncontrolled airspace. The airplanes and airplane parts were observed to descend and fall in ocean water. CAUSE: inadequate visual lookout by the pilots in both airplanes, which resulted in their failure to see-and-avoid conflicting traffic.
