Wow!  Glad no one was killed or seriously injured.  I watched the videos in the story linked above, seems the local TV news reporters are trying their best to pillory Key Lime Air.  I looked up Key Lime Air on Wikipedia and I did find this entry.

Quote

May 12, 2021 - Key Lime Air Swearingen SA-226-TC Metro N280KL, operating Flight KG970 from Salida Airport to Denver-Centennial Airport was involved in a mid-air collision with Cirrus SR-22 N416DJ near Centennial Airport. The aircraft made a safe landing. The Cirrus pilot activated the CAPS parachute system. No casualties occurred during this incident. ATC tapes suggest the pilot of the Cirrus aircraft overshot the approach course to runway 17R and entered into the path of the Metro, which was cleared to land on 17L. https://www.liveatc.net/recordings.php

 

So it would seem that this incident has nothing to do with Key Lime Air's operations or their pilot.

According to first hand witnesses flying at the airport, tower had cleared both for landing, one on left parallel runway and one on right parallel runway. Cirrus appears to have been going fast and overshot turn to final, running into the other final approach space. ATC records seem to corroborate. 

Of course, this is all opinion at this point until full investigation complete.

This is a good explanation of what might have happened.

Ouch, looks like both planes almost lose their tails...

And something is not clear: was the Cirrus pilot doing his first solo flight?

No, there was a Cessna pilot on his first solo that saw the Cirrus deploy his chute. He relayed information to ATC about where the Cirrus came down.

I'm fairly sure that will buff right out, but the Cirrus will will definitely need a bit of speedtape

To be honest, I tended to not be bothered about working Bank Holidays Christmas etc, and being like that it always got me plenty of stored up brownie points with the shift planners; that came in handy if I ever needed a day off at short notice as they were usually happy to oblige me knowing I'd not complain about working the days everyone wanted. The other thing about that is, it is often pretty quiet on those sorts of days, so you probably ended up doing less work overall.

The thing I didn't like was if we had to unload aeroplanes which carried animals used for testing. Most of that is banned in the UK, but it still goes on for medical research, although the planes tend to be parked at remote stands and usually at night for such operations, and they have a police escort as well since it can attract protesters. I would do it, since it was the job and although I am not keen on the idea of animal testing, when it is for medical research it is perhaps the lesser of two evils, although most companies would allow you to refuse if you strongly objected to it. Coincidentally, the last time I unloaded one of those flights, it was a Metroliner. We had to hose down the belt loader afterwards and we threw most of our clothing away after doing that, which gives you an idea of how unpleasant the conditions can be for such flights. Definitely not my favourite experience in aviation.

It's very fortunate that the control cables are routed under the deck and that the Cirrus only skimmed the top 2/3's of the fuselage, otherwise there would have been zero chance of a continued, controlled landing! :blush:
