This footage of a plane load of skydivers is truly amazing. As they prepare to jump the unthinkable happens. Somehow, the pilot manages to escape the flaming wreck and deploy his parachute. Unbelievably all 9 skydivers and the pilot make it to the ground safely. They wait nervously as the pilot of the first plane attempts to land his damaged aircraft. Astonishingly, all 11 manage to survive this horrendous mid air incident that could have easily ended in disaster.
