Collision at Tullahoma Regional Airport: FAA Investigates while Talk of the Town Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

Collision between business jet and another plane on the runway at Tullahoma Regional Airport

A business jet collided with a Diamond DA-42 plane at Tullahoma Regional Airport around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, as reported by the Federal Aviation Administration. The incident occurred while the DA-42 was taxiing, which is the process of moving an airplane while it is on the runway. The business jet involved was a Cessna Citation II with six people on board, while there was no one on the Diamond DA-42. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the collision.

The FAA is currently investigating the situation and is expected to provide a preliminary report within a few days. At this time, there are no further details available, but updates will be provided as soon as more information is available.

Meanwhile, Talk of the Town, a locally produced talk show that has been running for 40 years, is celebrating its anniversary. The show has become one of the longest-running programs of its kind in the country and reflects on its history with names like Bob Lobertini, Chris Clark, Hope Hines, and Oprah coming to mind along with iconic shows such as Night Train and Hee Haw. Forrest Sanders, storyteller-in-chief at NewsChannel 5 offers an entertaining and nostalgic look back at this beloved program affectionately referred to as “TOTT.”
