Video on msnbc.com: In video licensed by NBC News, one plane appears to fly right on top of another, forcing skydivers from both planes to jump while avoiding burning debris. NBC’s Anne Thompson reports.
None of the nine skydivers or two pilots sustained serious injuries when the two planes collided in mid-air Saturday evening in far northwest Wisconsin near Lake Superior.
Two planes collide in mid-air, since all passengers are skydivers, they all survive.
OH FUCK NOFUCKING NO.
I’m intrigued by this!
Waking from a deep sleep, 11,000m above the Pacific Ocean, and seeing the below image on the screen in front of you.
It took me the best part of one terror filled second to remember I’d selected 2001: A Space Odyssey as my in-flight movie.

John Mulaney - Girlfriend and Flying (por aleftynamedtony)
”A sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits..of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, “jumps” into place. What I love most about her shots is that they don’t feel forced. Natsumi has a way of making us feel as though she naturally levitates throughout life. When I asked her how others react to her jumping around Tokyo, here is a funny story that she shared. “One day, when I was jumping at a famous sightseeing spot in western Tokyo, workers at a souvenir shop were frightened by how I was jumping. They were whispering things like ‘Is the girl mentally ill’ and ‘Do we need to call the police?’ “So I stopped jumping and apologized to them by saying, ‘I am taking jumping photos for my wedding party’s slide show.’ Their faces turned bright red, and they said things like ‘Oh dear!’ and ‘Congratulations!’ and even ‘Keep jumping!’
