Shocking Video: Skydivers' Landing After Plane Crash

We have found 3 years old, but still shocking video capturing skydivers' landing after plane crash. The video is a jumper's eye-view from deep inside the Cessna aircraft during the dramatic crash 12,000ft above Wisconsin, USA. It captures the screams of panic as the skydivers realise their aircraft is about to slam into the plane below them. All 9 skydiver landed safely, as well as the two pilots, one of which was taken to the hospital to treat minor cuts.

Skydiving instructor Mike Robinson was at 12,000 feet, just seconds away from his fourth and final jump of the day, when a second plane carrying other skydivers struck the aircraft he was in, sending them all tumbling toward the ground. It was supposed to be a routine jump, and a fun one for Robinson, who usually jumps as a trainer. All of the skydivers were instructors or coaches and had hundreds, if not thousands, of jumps under their belts. It was Robinson's 937th jump. "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".

It shows those on the wing hurled on to the roof of the lower plane and momentarily pinned between the aircraft. One skydiver clings onto a bar holding while he is spun upside down. The skydivers are flung around like rag dolls by the violent impact which ripped one wing off and caused a fireball to erupt. Those on the wing manage to jump clear of the burning wreckage, but the video shows several skydivers frantic efforts to scramble to the door and leap clear. During skydivers' landing plane spirals out of control, and the disorientated jumpers find their way to the opening of the mangled aircraft.

Matt Fandler, who piloted the plane which exploded in a fireball was able to bailout and pull his emergency parachute. Blake Weldan, the pilot of the other aircraft, managed to fly his badly damaged plane back to the airport in one piece.
