Transcript for Skydiver's Parachute Gets Tangled Up With Private Plane
But a truly astonishing mid-air collision on camera. You have never seen this before. And world war ii vet gets tangled up with a sky diver's parachute. This could have been really ugly. It sure could have. The pilot was doing touch and go drills. Lands on the runway, and immediately takes off. He was come income for one of those landings, so too was a sky diver. Their incredible collision caught by a local photographer. This morning, a sky diver and a pilot have a miraculous story to share after they collided in mid-air. All of it caught on camera. As the shutter's clicking away, I realized that I'm seeing something that is certainly spectacul spectacular. Right before impact, a small Cessna plane flying toward a parachute as they come in for a landing and the nose of the plane slices throughout strings, sending the 49-year-old into the air before slamming him into the ground. And the pilot loses control. Crashing at a 90-degree angle, the nose crunching into the cockpit. You think, oh, my gosh, what happened? It was far from over. As the single-engine Cessna tumbles toward frost. There's a safety zone they are not supposed to be in. While it's hard to watch, both the pilot and frost escaped with minor injuries. This is absolutely incredible that we don't have any fatalities her. Both the ntsb and FAA are investigating it. The sky diver was released, the 87-year-old poiieltd was a world war ii vet, and he was kept for observation. That's why I don't sky dive and pilot planes. Exactly,yeah. Never do touch and go drills for that very reason. Thank you. Appreciate it. Another look at the morning's headlines, from Ron
