A flight instructor and his student were fatally injured Friday when the Cessna 172 they were flying was involved in a mid-air collision with a Cessna 180, according to police in Longmont, CO, where the accident occurred.
The instructor, 30-year-old Ryan Brungart of Srasburg, CO, and his student, 64-year-old Edward "Lee" Omohundro of Evergreen were on a training flight when their plane collided with the 180.
