2 firefighters killed when planes collide at Indiana airport
« on: April 03, 2018, 08:02:39 AM »
MARION, Ind. -- Two planes collided at a small Indiana airport Monday evening, killing two firefighters, the Grant County coroner told CBS affiliate WTTV. Officials identified the victims as Kyle M. Hibst and David Wittkamper, both 31-years-old from Elwood. They had served as volunteer firefighters at the Pipe Creek Fire Department out of Madison County.

The crash at Marion Municipal Airport, about 50 miles northeast of Indianapolis, involved a small private plane, which sustained fire damage after the collision, and a larger plane that had its tail completely severed off.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says the planes involved were a Cessna 525 Citation Jet and a single-engine Cessna 150, WTTV reports.
