WATCH: 2 Planes Collide Above Denver and Land with No One Injured
DENVER (AP) — Federal officials say two airplanes collided in the air near Denver and managed to land without anyone being hurt. Authorities say the collision between the twin-engine Fairchild Metroliner and the single-engine Cirrus SR22 happened Wednesday as both planes prepared to land at a small regional airport in a Denver suburb. Key Lime Air says its Metroliner's tail section was substantially damaged, but that the pilot landed safely at the Centennial Airport. Authorities say a pilot and one passenger were on the other plane that deployed a parachute and drifted safely down to a field.
