Skydiving Planes Collide-9

Mike Robinson, an instructor and safety adviser for Skydive Superior, describes the circumstances that caused a Cessna 185 and a Cessna 182 to collide in midair Saturday, Saturday evening, Nov. 2, 2013 over Superior in Superior, Wisc. Robinson was one of the jumpers on the plane that ended up crashing. The midair contact caused the wing to be separated from the fuselage of the Cessna 182. The Cessna 185 was damaged and was able to land safely. The two planes were flying in close formation so that nine skydivers could jump together. All jumpers and the pilot of the plane that crashed parachuted safely to the ground. (AP Photo/Duluth News Tribune, Clint Austin)
