    Planes crash but all 11 people aboard survive by skydiving out

    The crash happened Saturday evening over Superior, Wisconsin, near the Minnesota state line. It happened as the two planes were flying close by as the skydivers prepared to jump in formation, Superior Fire Department Battalion Chief Vern Johnson told CNN.
    Robinson said the lead plane, which crashed, had four skydivers aboard along with its pilot; the trailing plane had five parachutists.
    Johnson said the pilot of the lead plane told firefighters that before the jump, he heard a loud bang and his windshield shattered. The plane caught fire and broke up in midair, but the skydivers and the pilot all parachuted to safety.

    Well, I guess if two planes have to crash into each other -- it's not so bad an idea that they be full of sky divers.

    I always wondered why sky divers died in plane crashes. Glad these guys got out.

    In my limited time in sport jumping I never encountered a serious plane malfunction or accident.

    Some fun moments

    Pilot asked us all to exit the plane. Upon turning around, I saw oil spurting up on the windshield. We gladly exited the plane. He landed safely.

    On jump run the engine stopped. One person opened the door and we got ready to exit. The pilot LOL'd, he forgot to turn the pump on for the other gas tank.
