This past Saturday evening over Superior, Wisconsin, two planes carrying 11 people (2 pilots and 9 skydivers) collided in midair resulting in one plane erupting into flames and the second seriously damaged. Amazingly, all 9 skydivers and one pilot were able to jump clear of the mayhem and safely deploy their chutes. The pilot of the second aircraft was able to maneuver his damaged aircraft to a safe landing.
Of course, most of the divers were outfitted with helmet-cams, so some amazing footage has emerged documenting the near-tragedy. NBC News has the exclusive video. Check it out!
The two aircraft were reported to be flying in formation before a planned jump. An official investigation is underway to determine why the two planes went bumpity-bump.
