NTSB investigators may not have traveled in support of this investigation and used data provided by various sources to prepare this aircraft accident report.

On July 17, 2016, about 0930 mountain daylight time, a red and white colored Cessna 172 airplane, N8184B, was substantially damaged during a mid-air collision near Emmett, Idaho. The private pilot was not injured. The personal flight was conducted under the provisions of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and no flight plan was filed for the local flight that departed Emmett Municipal Airport (S78), Emmett, Idaho at approximately 0920. 

According to the pilot, he departed runway 28 and flew the left hand traffic pattern during his ascent to 3,500 feet mean sea level. He exited the traffic pattern and flew east for approximately 2 miles after which he turned northeast. About 10 minutes into the uneventful flight, he received a radio call from another airplane on the airport's Common Traffic Advisory Frequency (CTAF) that stated "aircraft east of Emmett…we almost got you." The pilot did not observe another airplane in his field of view and elected to continue the flight. After he landed about 40 minutes later, the pilot tied down the airplane and observed a tear in the airplane's rudder, which was accompanied by a stretch of blue paint. The pilot reported that he did not observe any mechanical malfunctions or anomalies at any point during the flight. 

The other airplane was not identified and a preliminary review of Federal Aviation Administration radar data did not show any aircraft that were operating in the area at the time of the radio call.
