MELBOURNE (HRNW) – Four people were killed in a mid-air collision between two light planes in Australia on Wednesday, scattering debris across a rural area north of Melbourne.
Police said the two twin-engined aircraft were each carrying a pilot and a passenger when they crashed around 4,000 feet (1,200) above the town of Mangalore.
Images from the crash scene on the ground showed twisted metal and chunks of fuselage scattered in a field and among trees.
Police said both planes were flying legally in the area but investigations were ongoing.
