Unfallbericht:
The DC-3 had recently undergone a Turbo Conversion by Basler Turbo Conversions, Inc for its new owner, the government of Mali. Company founder and CEO Warren Basler was flying a Beechcraft A36 Bonanza (registered N3657A, c/n E-188) to take some photographs of the DC-3. On its last pass, the A36 circled behind the DC-3, then crossed over the top and hitting the top of the DC-3 at an altitude of 700 feet . About 5 seconds after impact, the DC-3 gently rolled/turned westbound (apparently descending and gaining airspeed); the left wing then came off, followed by the right wing about 2 seconds later.

PROBABLE CAUSE: "Failure of the Beech A36 pilot to maintain clearance from the modified Douglas DC-3, while positioning the A36 for photography of the DC-3."
