Two planes collide over San Francisco Bay

SAN FRANCISCO: Two small planes have collided over San Francisco Bay, leaving a pilot missing after only one of the aircraft landed safely.

US Coast Guard spokeswoman Loumania Stewart says a water search is underway after debris was spotted in the water following the Sunday afternoon collision.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the collision involved a Cessna 210 and a Hawker Sea Fury TMK 20. Each aircraft had one person on board.

Gregor says the Cessna crashed into the water, and the pilot of the Hawker was able to land safely at a small airport.

That pilot was reportedly uninjured.
