Two small planes collide over mall near Montreal, one dead

Moments before two small airplanes collided with each other in the skies above a suburban shopping centre, air traffic control at Saint-Hubert airport, near Montreal, was trying desperately to warn one of the pilots of nearby traffic. However, only two other people were injured in the accident, which happened shortly before 1pm yesterday.

Another witnesses, Patricia Bon, said that she heard "a loud boom" and then saw a plane "that was completely crushed".

Portions of the mall have been evacuated and motorists are advised to stear clear of the area.

Police said it was a miracle no-one else was seriously hurt. This video shows the wreckage of one of the planes in the parking lot.

He saw pieces of the plane fall out of sky.

Jonathan Vanasse was eating at a restaurant next to the parking lot crash site.

Officials at a Montreal flight school say they are at a loss to explain how two Chinese students flying school-owned Cessna 152s collided above a busy shopping mall and crashed on Friday, killing one of the students and severely injuring the other.

He said he and several others ran outside and saw the plane, which he said was leaking fuel.

They said they will be conducting further interviews and sending what is left of the two planes back to labs in Ottawa in order to determine what went wrong.

Investigators from the Transportation Safety Board arrived on the scene Friday evening.
