Two Dead in Midair Plane Collision


Two small planes collided in midair over Wawayanda, New York, Monday afternoon, killing at least two and critically injuring a third person. The accident occurred around fifteen minutes after the planes both took off from the Orange County Airport at around 3 p.m. “One clipped the other, clipped the wing is what it looked like from my angle,” said witness Rebekah Rochelle. “The one spiraled directly down, and the other was more at an angle over the hill.” The identities of the dead and wounded were not immediately known.
