Two planes carrying skydivers collided 12,000 feet in the air on Saturday night in northwest Wisconsin near Lake Superior. The pilot of the second plane was able to land it while everyone else jumped to safety. Authorities, as of Sunday night, still didn't know what caused the crash.
"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," said Mike Robinson, - an instructor and safety adviser for Skydive Superior. He added that, "It turned into a big flash fireball and the wing separated. All of us knew we had a crash. ... The wing over our head was gone, so we just left."
A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration said the lead plane broke into three parts, with debris landing on the airport property and an adjacent retail area.
We are just glad that everyone survived!
