“This was so crazy scary. I had to look up the story, shocked to hear everyone survived,” said one social media user.
“Bro, how you got all that sky and still hit another plane,” asked someone.
“I can’t believe nobody got seriously injured,” wrote another.
“We do this all the time. We just don’t know what happened for sure that caused this,” skydiving instructor Mike Robinson told The Guardian.
“We were just a few seconds away from having a normal skydive when the trail plane came over the top of the lead aircraft and came down on top of it,” he 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,” he added.
