SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) -- Two planes carrying skydivers collided in midair Saturday evening in far northwest Wisconsin, but no major injuries have been reported.
Mike Robinson, an instructor and safety adviser for Skydive Superior, says he and 10 others escaped relatively unharmed after one plane crashed into the other during what he said was a common tandem formation.
Robinson says he was on the lead plane preparing to jump when planes collided.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Roland Herwig says the collision occurred about 6 p.m. at about 12,000 feet.
The pilot of the lead plane managed to escape as it broke apart, while the other pilot was able to land the damaged second plane.
Herwig says the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.
