Skydiving Plane Collision Footage is Riveting: VIDEO


You may have read about the accident over the weekend in which two planes filled with skydivers collided in a fiery accident over Wisconsin.

Like most things these days, it was being recorded on video. NBC News obtained the heart-stopping video of the crash and the skydivers' return to Earth. No doubt they are counting their blessings today.

  1. Gravity, it's not just a good idea it's the law.

  2. It makes me mad that these guys endanger not only their on lives, but those of innocent people on the ground as well. Do that stuff over the desert!

  3. I know so many of these outdoorsy-adrenaline junkie type people...and some of them a real buffoons... I hope this was an innocent mistake and not a pattern of reckless behavior.

  7. Went skydiving myself (once). Innocently, but well-trained. Never imagined an accident or near-catastrophe. So lucky. Won't do it again, though. Only jumped from 3,000 ft. - not 12,000. - although a few thousand feet doesn't really matter. It all happens so quickly. Actually, the plane was really noisy. Was glad to be away from it!! Har!!

  8. What do I think this was a set-up. Adrenaline junkies are @$$holes.

  9. The wreckage could have killed people as well. What the hell were two planes doing that close to each other? I hope the FAA investigates and throws the book at the responsible pilot(s).
