Yeah, saw that when the story broke (was it yesterday, I think?)...

Incident happened while one of them was still on the ground, taxiing
for takeoff or something.

Even though they were powered planes, its a good reminder that "see
and avoid" needs to be taken seriously - all the way to the end of
your landing rollout!

Just because you're no longer thermalling (or you're established in
the landing pattern) doesn't mean you stop your visual scan!

Take care, and fly safe,
