Narrative:
A Cu Nim Gliding Club Cessna 182N (C-FPZE), was conducting tow operations at the Black Diamond/Cu Nim airstrip (CEH2), AB. C-FLTY, a Cu Nim Gliding Club Schleicher ASK 21 dual seat glider, was operating at CEH2 with an instructor and student on board. C-FPZE departed runway 07 with C-FLTY in tow and proceeded to climb to 2000 feet above the aerodrome at which time C-FLTY released from the tow plane. Shortly after release, C-FLTY and C-FPZE collided 0.5 nm southwest of the threshold of Runway 07. The collision resulted in the vertical and horizontal stabilizers being separated from the glider. The glider entered a dive from which it did not recover.
The tow plane sustained damage to the propeller and right wing; however, the pilot managed to perform a successful forced landing with idle power onto Runway 14. The student and instructor were fatally injured; the tow pilot was not injured.
