Mid-air collision in Ohio

Ohio midair crash kills 2, rains debris on neighborhood

SHARONVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Two small aircraft collided Friday over suburban Cincinnati, raining debris onto roads and back yards and killing two people on board, authorities said.

The accident evidently involved two planes, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a recorded message. The agency initially said one of the aircraft might have been a helicopter.

Witnesses gave conflicting accounts of the types of aircraft involved.

The FAA had no information about the aircrafts' flight plans or why they were so close together. Blue Ash Airport, a runway used by small planes, is several miles away.

No injuries were reported on the ground. Several roads were closed because of the debris.

The planes' pilots were not required to file flight plans and apparently were not in contact with air traffic controllers, the FAA said.

Resident Joe Muenks said wreckage from one of the planes fell in a yard about three blocks from his house.

"It took out about a third of a tree," Muenks said. "The plane nose-dived. ... The metal was so crunched together, we could just see there was no way anyone who was in there could have survived."

What remained of the other plane landed in a street less than a mile (1.6 kilometers) away, blocking the two-lane road with some debris ending up in a front yard. The aircraft narrowly missed a busy interstate, coming down on either side of it.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
