Détails:
The Cessna pilot entered the Vieques (VQS) traffic pattern on the downwind leg at 1,000 feet, and turned from base to final. At the same time a Vieques Air Link Britten Norman BN-2A Islander (N663VL) turned left from base leg to final approach. At 500 feet, both airplanes touched wing tips; the Cessna's damage was to the right wing and the Britten-Norman's damage was to the left wing. The Britten-Norman's pilot continued the approach and landed without further incident on runway 09. The Cessna's pilot initiated a go-around, for another approach, and landed without further incident on runway 09.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The failure of both pilots to see and avoid, also causal was the failure of the pilot of the Britten-Norman Islander (N663VL) to yield right of way to an aircraft in the traffic pattern."
