It is a sad reality that a high wing Cessna and a low wing piper can get into relative positions that they cannot be seen from the other as they close. I've had first hand experience with the scare of this. Add to that, the possible distraction from an active lookout of eyes in during instruction, and the feeling that out in that vast area, you think you're alone.

As an aside, the article seemed well researched and written, compared to many air crash news articles.
