Eastern Flight 167 took off from Gainsville at 11:26 on a VFR flight plan to Ocala. At 11:45 a Civil Air Patrol Piper L-4J (45-5151, cn 13891) took off from
Ocala-Taylor Field runway 21. The Piper was climbing after a left turn when it collided with the DC-3 at 700-800 feet. The DC-3's no. 1 prop made several span-wise cuts into the left wing of the Piper. Control was lost and the Piper crashed into a heavily wooded area, killing the pilot. The DC-3 circled the airport for a few minutes and landed at 12:10.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The failure of the pilots of both aircraft to observe the other in time to take the necessary evasive action."
