It is always a terrible news when tragedy strikes in the air. Preliminary details about a midair collision in the Everglades, 11 miles northwest of Miami Executive Airport report the accident claimed the lives of four people, apparently two aboard each aircraft- a twin-engine Piper Seneca and Cessna 172. Both aircraft were involved in flight training activities at the time of the accident that occurred about 1 p.m. local time on July 17th, 2018. Each aircraft is believed to have carried a flight instructor and one additional person, although which people were aboard which aircraft is still unconfirmed. One of the instructors was an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner.
The tail number of the Cessna has not yet been identified although it is reported to have been from the same school as that of the Seneca.
