Narrative:
A TWA DC-3 (N51167) departed Kansas City-Municipal for a pilot requalification check flight at 10:01 CST. The crew carried out a touch-and-go at the nearby Fairfax Airport runway 35 following which the DC-3 started a climbing left turn. At an altitude of 1750-1900 feet (150 knots airspeed, 200deg heading) the pilots heard a noise and felt the plane swerve to the left. The DC-3 made an emergency landing at Kansas City-Fairfax. It appeared that the Dc-3 had collided with a Cessna 140A aircraft (N1158D, cn 15721 owned by Baker Flying Service). The Cessna had left the Municipal Airport for an instrument training flight and had been cleared for Fairfax runway 13 at the time of the collision. The Cessna lost control and crashed.
