OTAY MESA — An early investigation into the fatal midair plane collision Sunday, which killed five people, indicate the planes have have clipped wings as they passed in opposite directions over Otay Mesa, officials said Monday.
National Transportation Safety Board investigator Andrew Swick said an analysis of impact marks suggest the right wing of a Sabreliner jet collided with the right wing of a smaller aircraft about two miles northeast of Brown Field Municipal Airport. The left wings of both planes were still intact.
The incident is still under investigation with the NTSB, which plans to send all wreckage to Arizona for further analysis and reconstruction of the aircrafts.

Guess the radar evaluation wasn't too good then. Sorry.
