Descripción:
Falcon 20C N121GW was flying multiple instrument approaches in the Memphis traffic pattern during a training flight with a flight instructor and three Saudi Arabian first officers. Downwind following a runway 17R go around the Falcon collided with Cessna 150M N6423K at 2000 feet. Both aircraft crashed.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The failure of controller personnel to separate the aircraft as required by procedures established for a terminal radar service area, to insure that proper coordination was effected, to issue appropriate traffic advisories, and the failure of each flightcrew to see and avoid the other aircraft."
