Amazing escape from mid-air crash

Nine skydivers and two pilots had an astonishing escape after their planes collided in mid-air - 12,000ft above ground.

All of them survived what could have been a fatal disaster after one of the planes broke apart into a fireball.

Luckily all of the skydivers were preparing to jump out of the plane and managed to jump and land safely.

One of the pilots managed to deploy his emergency parachute while the other landed his plane safely – despite damage to its propellor and wing.

The parachutists had the unnerving experience of dropping amidst the flaming wreckage of the accident but incredibly nobody was hurt.

It happened over Wisconsin, near Lake Superior, and was recorded on video by helmet mounted cameras which has been uploaded to YouTube.

The footage shows chaos and panic during what was supposed to be the last dive of the day.

As two skydivers prepare to jump in a formation, another plane comes up from underneath them and the two aircraft collide.

One man can be heard screaming “No!” as he jumps and tumbles through the air. The other skydivers follow suit.

Skydiving instructor Mike Robinson, 64, 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.”
