  Sadly, I heard a short radio news story today and hoped it didn't
involve friends. It stated that 2 planes collided in western NC, enroute
to an airshow, and that both pilots were killed. No names or other
details were given. A Raleigh News and Observer newspaper story was
equally lacking facts, and stated that the 2 planes fell within 250 feet
of each other, and that the accident happened south of Greensboro about
25 miles.

I thought someone may have additional information...
