Terrifying Moment a Skydiver was Hit By Plane in Florida as He Came in to Land


Having a skydiver hit and crash a plane was not what the U.S. Parachute Association wanted as the highlight of Skydiving Safety Day, but that’s exactly what they got. The diver and the 87-year-old pilot both survived the freak accident — which took place at South Lakeland Airport in Florida — with only minor injuries. And we’ve survived the crash with all these pictures of it, which were taken by photographer Tim Telford, who just so happened to be in the right place at the right time. Otherwise known as “the wrong place at the wrong time” for the subjects of these photos.
