    A high wing Cessna departing the runway did not see a landing Citation jet and collided.

    Citation CJ4, Cessna 150 Collide at Non-towered Airport
    A departing Cessna 150 struck the tail of a landing Cessna Citation CJ4 last night about 5:09 p.m. at Marion Municipal Airport in Indiana, killing the two people aboard the piston single. There were no reported injuries to the pilot or four passengers on board the CJ4, but the collision with the C150 severed the tail from the jet. Marion Municipal is a non-towered airport.

    Cessna 150 N5614E is registered to Kyle Hibst, who perished in the accident along with David Wittkamper. Both were reportedly 31-year-old volunteer firefighters at the Pipe Creek Fire Department in Madison County. The piston single was destroyed in a post-crash fire.

    According to FAA records, the CJ4 was registered as N511AC and owned by Avis Industrial of Grant, Indiana. An FAA preliminary report listed damage to the jet as “unknown,” but photographs taken by local media show that nearly the whole T-tail was sheared off in the collision and that the right cowling sustained multiple dents.

    An NTSB investigation is under way. As a resource, NBAA offers pilots a free online guide for operating business aircraft into non-towered airports.

    FAA makes a big deal out of the 300 or so runway incursions every year. This is from towered airports and mainly are large aircraft. Just one busy non-towered airport could have 50 runway incursions a year, but no one would know about it. Multiply this by the thousands of non -toward airports and the runway incursion number goes into the 10's of thousands!!!

    o_O.....The FAA concern is pure BRAVO SIERRA!!!
