This might be the only time you read about a plane crash and actually have a light heart after hearing what happened. Two skydiving planes were getting ready to jump in northwest Wisconsin Saturday night when one of the planes struck the other, breaking it into three parts. Luckily, the nine skydivers and two pilots all escaped the crash, steering away from the debris and skydiving to safety.
"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," instructor Mike Robinson said. "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."
The plane that was not destroyed landed at the Richard I. Bong Airport where it took off. The Federal Aviation Administration is still trying to determine what the cause of the crash was.
