Both aircraft were heading for reporting point Sierra to join the circuit for landing at Lelystad. They were flying at a height of 700 feet. The Cessna pilot was probably focused on identifying point Sierra, since he did not fly to Lelystad often. The Fuji pilot possibly did not hear the radio call from PH-BVE because the radio volume had been turned down while performing aerobatics in the area. Also, the tower did not hear any radio call from PH-JEJ while they were approaching point Sierra. The pilot of PH-JEJ failed to confirm receipt of his message with Lelystad tower.
