Descripción:
After departing Gadsden, the Embraer collided head-on with Civil Air Patrol Cessna 172 N99501, causing the right stabilizer to separate. The Cessna crashed, but the Brasilia made a safe emergency landing.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Inadequate visual lookout by the pilots of both aircraft, which resulted in their failure to see-and-avoid oncoming traffic. A factor related to the accident was: the sun's glare, which restricted the vision of the Cessna 172 pilot."
