Nobody Dies after Two Planes Full of Skydivers Crash in the Air

Nine skydivers and two pilots survived a mid-air crash at 12,000 feet this weekend after those aboard were able to safely parachute to the ground.

Two of those aboard suffered minor injuries.

The surreal crash along the Wisconsin-Minnesota border left one plane totally destroyed, forcing its pilot to eject to safety. The other plane was eventually able to land.

According to a local Fox affiliate, authorities still don't know why the two planes collided, though they were flying close to each other at the time, one following the other.

  1. Ha! They almost had some news to report!

    I like this line too, "authorities still don't know why the two planes collided, though they were flying close to each other at the time." My guess is they collided because they got a little too close to each other! :-D

  2. They call it a "near miss" when in reality, isn't it a "near hit?" :)
