Talk about one in a million. We had a combat league two years ago with a neighbouring club. We had very few mid-airs however the VP of that club and myself collided every week. We could fly in 5 heats and only collide when we flew together. It started out as funny but by the end of the summer, it was considered tradition.

Mid air in combat may sound easy but it was pure luck that made us hit each time

It was a fun summer for sure..

This wasn't a mid-air, but it was one heck of a crash. At an event a couple of weeks ago, one of the events was how fast you could go accross the field. One of the guys at our field decided to go out of sight way up high and then come straight down with his modified Eagle II. He got going so fast that one side of the wing blew right off of it just as he was startng to level out. From there, it was a 100MPH lawn dart from 100 ft. in the air. Here's the result
