Forty Years of Memories: A Look Back at Talk of the Town and the Plane Collision at Tullahoma Regional Airport

Collision between business jet and another plane on the runway at Tullahoma Regional Airport

In other news, a business jet collided with a Diamond DA-42 plane at Tullahoma Regional Airport around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, as reported by the Federal Aviation Administration. The incident occurred while the DA-42 was taxiing, which is the process of moving an airplane while it is on the runway. The business jet involved was a Cessna Citation II with six people on board, while there was no one on the Diamond DA-42. Fortunately, no injuries were reported as a result of the collision. The aircraft registration number for the Diamond DA-42 is N333EB.

As we reflect on this unfortunate incident, we turn our attention to Talk of the Town, a locally produced talk show that has been celebrating its 40th anniversary recently. The show has become one of the longest-running programs of its kind in the country and has featured names like Bob Lobertini, Chris Clark, Hope Hines, and Oprah over the years. Iconic shows such as Night Train and Hee Haw have also graced our screens in its history.

A storyteller-in-chief at NewsChannel 5, Forrest Sanders, offers an entertaining and nostalgic look back at this beloved show that has been a staple in our community for decades. As we take this trip down memory lane together with TOTT’s special anniversary celebration, let us hope that more information will be provided about the incident involving two planes at Tullahoma Regional Airport soon from FAA investigations.
