“Colliding with Death at 37,000 feet and Living”

Embraer Legacy 600 had mid air collision with Boeing 737-800 over the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil – there were no survivors on the Boeing – passengers in the Legacy survived. 

This year at our Annual Aviation Leadership Breakfast some of our regular attendees will share their remarkable story of survival after an almost head-on collision with a Boeing 737-800 airliner at 37,000 feet over the Amazon.  

Below are pictures of their aircraft, an Embraer Legacy 600, being accepted new from the manufacturer, the wing and winglet in flight before the collision, and the wing, winglet, and horizontal stabilizer after the collision.

Sign up and bring your colleagues and customers for fellowship, breakfast and to hear the inspiring stories from our Aviation Leadership Breakfast friends and associates. You can register now by emailing Deborah Nesbitt at deborah.nesbitt@baml.com or Dennis Blackburn at blackburn@flycci.com.

Please spread the word about our 2013 Breakfast and start your 2013 NBAA Conference with us and an amazing story from the survivors of this near death experience.
