Dallas in the News
Dad said this has happened before. A Piper Cherokee landed on top of a Cessna 172. The Cherokee pilot wondered why his brakes wouldn't work. Neither pilot knew he had been in an accident. The 172 taxied to the flight line with a Piper Cherokee on top of him and parked. Must have been a sight.
Here's an FAA document detailing the safety record of the Cessna 172. It details a midair on final approach between a Mooney (low wing) and a 172 (high wing). All survived. My Dad was a Cessna dealer by the way, but he's flown all sorts of aircraft, both high wing and low wing.

Great shot of the piggy-back landing. There's so much aviation around Dallas. Dallas Airport and the F-35 works next door.
Your so lucky.
