I have the bug to buy something else and one thing I do before calling the seller is to try and find out as much as I can about the plane of interest, much to my surprise the plane I am looking at was involved in a fatal mid air long ago, it was a head on collision, between a Piper and Mooney the Mooney had two crew and both died. The Piper lost one of the landing gear and had further substantial damage upon landing, the pilot was uninjured. The questions are, would you buy that Piper no matter how nice it was, knowing the history of a mid air collision and the deaths of the Mooney crew. Leave DH out of this, it has more to do with the event of a mid air and tail numbers. Would you buy a plane where the N Number had been attached to a fatal crash or any crashed airplane? , the Mooney tail number is on a Beechcraft F33 now. What say you?
