(CNN) -- A Cessna collided with a parachute at a small airport in Polk County, Florida, on Saturday.

The plane took a nose dive, and the skydiver was thrown to the ground.

Neither the pilot nor the skydiver were seriously injured when they fell about 75 feet, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

Sharon Trembley was doing what are called "touch and goes" with the Cessna, a maneuver in which the plane touches the ground and ascends again. . .

On the pilot's third time up, one wing became tangled in the strings of the parachute that held 49-year-old John Frost, officials said. . .

now is the time to tear it down and up grade the engine to more horse power the rest of the fuselage behind the fire wall looks pretty good. the down side of the 140 is it didn't have flaps and it was a little underpowered on the up side they weren't avgas guzzlers either.
