Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Personal (A1); Part 91: General aviation - Personal (A2)

On July 23, 2021, about 1345 central daylight time, an experimental amateur-built RV-7 airplane, N977RV, sustained minor damage and a RV-8 airplane, N747JG, sustained substantial damage when they were involved in an accident at the Wittman Regional Airport (OSH), Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The pilots of both airplanes were not injured. The airplanes were operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight.

The pilots reported that they were landing at OSH in a four-airplane formation. They were cleared to land on the green dot on runway 27. The RV-8 was in the number two position and the RV-7 was right behind it in the number 4 position.

The pilot of the RV-8 reported that they touched down and shortly thereafter air traffic control informed them to turn right onto the grass. He started the turn when suddenly the RV-7 struck his airplane.

The pilot of the RV-7 reported that his airplane touched down and bounced. It settled back onto the runway and started to slow. As the tailwheel touched down, the RV-8 temporarily went out of view. When the RV-8 came back into view, it was turning in front of his airplane. He immediately applied the brakes and added right rudder, but his left wing impacted the RV-8’s rudder, aileron, and right wing which resulted in substantial damage.
