I thought this was pretty amazing - two aircraft collided on final and one landed without much of an issue (even though it had a lot of damage) and the other landed with a parachute system and everyone walked away.

Here's a video with the radio comms, and everyone seems very calm, even the pilot of one of the aircraft involved.
