NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

After landing and clearing the outer parallel runway, the biplane pilot was directed by the ground controller to taxi across the inner parallel runway, 'without delay'. The biplane pilot complied with the instructions and his airplane collided with a Cessna trainer who was holding short on the taxiway waiting takeoff clearance from the inner parallel runway.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident to be:

The failure of the pilot of N101DT to maintain a visual lookout during the taxi phase of his flight and the failure of the ground controller to issue a traffic advisory to N101DT about the location of N6285M.
