    A close-knit aviation community's been rocked by a mid-air collision in Masterton

    A close-knit aviation community's been rocked by a mid-air collision in Masterton


    The two pilots died yesterday morning near the Hood Aerodrome.

    The aircraft involved were one that had just taken skydivers up into the air, and a plane for training pilots.

    Masterton mayor Lyn Patterson says she's been receiving lots of calls from the community.

    She says the airfield is well-used by a lot of recreational flyers and everyone's expressing their sorrow about what's happened.
