SUPERIOR - Two planes carrying skydivers collided in midair Saturday evening in far northwest Wisconsin, but no major injuries have been reported.
Mike Robinson, an instructor and safety adviser for Skydive Superior, says he and 10 others escaped relatively unharmed after one plane crashed into the other during what he said was a common tandem formation.
Robinson says he was on the lead plane preparing to jump when planes collided.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Roland Herwig says the collision occurred about 6 p.m. at about 12,000 feet.
The pilot of the lead plane managed to escape as it broke apart, while the other pilot was able to land the damaged second plane.
Herwig says the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
