Two Skydiving Planes Crash

At least their mission was to jump. On Saturday, two skydiving planes collided near Lake Superior in Wisconsin, sending nine skydivers and one pilot plummeting toward the ground from 12,000 feet in the air, while the other pilot landed safely at an airport. "We were just a few seconds away from having a normal skydive when the trail plane came over the top of the lead aircraft and came down on top of it," one instructor on board reported. "It turned into a big flash fireball and the wing separated." The ejected pilot was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, but no one else was hurt.
