"You're Gonna Die Up There" Fatal Midair Collision At Johnson Creek Airport (3U2), Yellow Pine, Idaho.

Pilot: We never saw or heard other plane in crash 

ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — A midair crash in Idaho that killed a 2-year-old boy and injured three men, including two from Roseburg, Ore., last week occurred without warning, one of the pilots says. "I didn't see the other plane or hear them on the radio, and they didn't see us," 39-year-old Chris Jordan told the Roseburg News-Review. "I knew from reading, people don't survive midair collisions. I thought I was going to die." Jordan was landing a single-engine Piper Tri-Pacer Friday at the Johnson Creek Airport, a back-country airstrip near Yellow Pine in western Idaho. A twin-engine Beechcraft Baron also heading for a landing came down on top of Jordan's plane about 60 feet in the air, the Valley County Sheriff's Office said. The other pilot, Ronald Beitel, 48, of Salt Lake City, was seriously injured, and his young son was killed. Source
