TWO-PLANE COLLISION KILLS BOTH PILOTS AT SHOW

Two airplanes collided Sunday at an air show, killing both pilots, police said.

The accident near Harriman-West Airport in North Adams occurred 30 minutes into the show commemorating the airport's 50th anniversary.

A twin-engine Cessna and an L-19, a World War II vintage observation plane, were flying in close formation when one clipped the other and both crashed to the ground, witnesses said.

The planes landed a distance from a crowd of several thousand, and no onlookers were injured. The names of the dead pilots were not immediately available.
