Narrative:
The aircraft, a vintage North American T-28B Trojan, collided with a Cessna 152 after landing at Compton-Woodley Airport (KCPM), in Los Angeles County, California. The Cessna was destroyed by the impact and fire. One of the two occupants of the Cessna was killed, and the other occupant was critically injured. The T-28 sustained substantial damage, and the sole pilot on board was reported to be uninjured.

Witnesses say it appeared the Cessna had already landed and was taxiing when the other pilot, possibly having trouble with the setting sun, also tried landing on the same runway and crashed into it.
