Air Planes Bumped Into Each Other Over Icelandic Glacier

Two small aircraft bumped into each other while flying over Langjökull glacier in Iceland. The incident occurred at 3.000 feet over the glacier on September 5th and is currently under investigation.

Although two passengers were onboard in each craft, no casualties were reported. Ragnar Guðmundsson from the Icelandic Transportation Safety Board told MBL that the wing of one craft bumped into the airframe of the other. He is currently awaiting radar-data that can show the exact location of the incident.

Both planes flew immediately to Reykjavík after the incident. “Both of them landed in Reykjavík and the damages became clear after they landed.”

A statement has been taken from the crew and research is still underway.
