Small plane down in Ariz. after mid-air collision

Posted: Updated:

CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say two small planes collided in mid-air over Arizona, but the pilots managed to safely land both aircrafts and there are no reported injuries.
A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman says the pilot of a Piper PA28 reported he landed safely at Gila River Memorial Airport after the collision around 2 p.m. Friday.
The FAA says the pilot identified the other aircraft as a Piper Cherokee and authorities reported that plane went down about 13 miles southeast of the Chandler Municipal Airport. But FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the other aircraft landed safely at a vehicle test track.
Gregor says there were no reported injuries to anyone aboard either plane.
Details on how the mid-air crash occurred aren't immediately available and the names of the two pilots haven't been released.
