A Cessna Grand Caravan, registration D-FOLE, was damaged following a midair collision with a Cessna FR172K Hawk XP. Both aircraft landed safely.
The Grand Caravan plane operated on a cargo flight from Emden Airport (EME) to Langeoog Airport (LGO). The flight was descending for Langeoog when it collided with Cessna FR172K Hawk XP, registration D-EISP (msn FR172-0633) operated by Frisia Luftverkehr Norddeich (FLN). The collision occurred at a height of 1000 feet. The Cessna 172 operated on a VFR flight from Wangerooge Airport (AGE) to Norden-Norddeich Airport (EDWS). The collision caused damage to the Caravan's right hand main gear and underbelly cargo pod. D-EISP lost a two metre long part of the right hand wing, but was able to divert to Emden for an emergency landing. D-FOLE continued to Langeoog were it landed safely.

The BFU closed the investigation by publishing a factual report which did not contain a probable cause statement.
