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

THE STUDENT PILOT WAS FLYING A PIPER PA-28, N8836N. AFTER TAKING OFF FROM AN UNCONTROLLED AIRPORT, HE MADE 3 OR 4 TOUCH-AND-GO LANDINGS, THEN DEPARTED THE TRAFFIC PATTERN FOR A SHORT TIME. WHEN HE REENTERED THE TRAFFIC PATTERN, HE MONITORED THE UNICOM FREQUENCY AND REPORTED HIS POSITION IN THE PATTERN. HE HEARD THE AIRCREW OF A CESSNA 152, N89585, CALL FOR A STOP-AND-GO. THE STUDENT STATED THAT HE DID NOT REALIZE THE OTHER AIRCRAFT WOULD COME TO A FULL STOP ON THE RUNWAY. THE STUDENT REPORTED THAT AS HE CONTINUED THE LANDING, HE WAS CONCENTRATING ON THE END OF THE RUNWAY AND ON TOUCHING DOWN PROPERLY. HE DID NOT SEE THE CESSNA STOPPED ON THE RUNWAY UNTIL AFTER TOUCHDOWN. HE TURNED TO AVOID A COLLISION, BUT HIS RIGHT WING HIT THE TAIL OF THE CESSNA. THE INSTRUCTOR PILOT IN THE CESSNA STATED THAT HE AND HIS STUDENT HAD COME TO A STOP ABOUT 1200 TO 1300 FT FROM THE APPROACH END OF THE RUNWAY. THEY WERE RECONFIGURING THE CESSNA FOR TAKEOFF WHEN THE COLLISION OCCURRED.
