    I jumped from a perfectly good plane once. It was using a static line at about 3,800ft. After exiting the plane we had to guide ourselves to the landing site. Best hundred bucks I ever spent.

    No one was badly injured in that collision and all landed safely.

    Even the pilots got out? That one with the starbioard wing sheared off looked like it would be a bear to get out of...lotta gees in that kind of spin.

    Pilots don't wear parachutes, and that bottom aircraft lost half its main wing and caught fire. At least one person died in that accident.

    "None of the nine skydivers or two pilots sustained serious injury when the two planes collided in midair Saturday evening " "The pilot of Robinson's plane ejected himself, and the pilot of the second plane landed the aircraft safely..."quoted from the article liked in post #3
