Two small planes collide mid-air and both landed safely

AURORA, Co. / CNN — One of two planes that crashed in the air near Denver deployed a parachute and slowly drifted to the ground, where two people walked away from the aircraft, officials said.

The other plane, a small cargo turboprop, landed at a nearby airport, Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Deputy John Bartmann said. Only the pilot was on board and they weren’t injured.

The planes collided over Cherry Creek State Park around 10:25 a.m., the spokesperson said. He said it was not yet known which aircraft was responsible for the crash.

“You expect something a lot worse. This was amazing,” Bartmann said. “We’ve had several plane crashes in our jurisdiction. Never have we seen a parachute be deployed and bring the plane down safely.”

The plane that used a parachute was a Cirrus SR22.

“It came down nice and slow,” Bartmann said.

The other aircraft was a Metroliner, officials said.

A tweet from the National Transportation Safety Board said the incident happened as the planes were landing.

The debris field stretched “pretty far,” Bartmann said. He said if people find plane parts in the park, they should not touch them, and instead call the sheriff’s office.
