    [article] :(

    A twin-engine aircraft trying to avoid another plane towing a glider across the runway crashed Saturday in Georgia, killing three people, authorities and witnesses said.

    The aircraft had arrived at the LaGrange Callaway Airport, 50 miles southwest of Atlanta, from Panama City, Fla., on Saturday morning, then refueled and was practicing approaches and landings, NBC station WXIA of Atlanta reported.

    The aircraft was reported to be a Beechcraft Baron.

    Is there no ATC at that airport? Pilot must have pulled up too sharply before the powered up engines reacted.

    Strange that we were just talking about a Beech Baron and the V tailed Bonanza in another thread.
