SUPERIOR - Investigators think they know why two skydiving planes crashed mid-air near Superior two years ago.

They blame a lack of guidance from the Federal Aviation Administration and improper training.

The crash happened in November 2013.

All nine skydivers on the two planes and one pilot jumped to safety.

The other pilot landed the damaged plane.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the FAA doesn't have many rules on how pilots should fly formation flights with skydivers.

Because of that, the owner of the skydiving company did not give its pilots training.

Footage from helmet cameras shows one plane coming down on the back of another, damaging the lead plane's right wing.
