William Davis is just learning to fly an airplane, so his wife was filming as he brought a 2005 Cessna Skyhawk in for a landing Saturday at Northwest Regional Airport in Roanoke, Texas. Then, an SUV drove in his way. He hit it, the plane crashed, and you can see it all on the video above, courtesy of NBC 5. The couple in the car suffered minor injuries. Davis walked away unscathed.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
