Two Planes Full of Skydivers Crash in Mid-Air and Everyone’s Fine

Here’s the most metal thing you’ll read all day. At 12,000 feet above Wisconsin, two planes full of skydivers veered off course and accidentally crashed into each other. Conveniently and awesomely, everyone on the plane was unusually well-prepared for plummeting to the earth below, and all nine plane passengers parachuted to safety. One pilot ejected and joined his buddies on their descent. The other pilot just crash-landed his plane. All in all, it was a total Michael Bay movie. Come to think, it’s the sort of scenario that Michael Bay would probably dream up and then think, “Nah, too unrealistic.” The FAA still isn’t quite sure what went wrong with the planes, but maybe that’s because they’re asking the wrong question. Everything here went perfectly awesome …

Update: An earlier version of this erroneously said this happened in Washington.
