Shocking Video: Everyone Survives After Two Skydiving Planes Collide in the Air
For most, skydiving is already one of the most extreme, thrill-seeking adventures one can take part in, but for nine skydivers in Superior, Wisconsin, their skydiving experience took the notions of “extreme” and “thrill-seeking” to a whole new level.
Saturday evening, during what was supposed to be the final jump of the day, two pilots and nine skydivers took to the sky in two planes to take part in what they thought would be a routine skydiving experience. But when both of the planes collided in the air, the situation turned from routine to deadly.
Amazingly, all nine skydivers and one pilot were able to safely escape the plane and deploy their parachutes in time for a safe landing, while the other pilot was able to safely land his damaged plane.
