AT least two people are dead after two small planes collided over an airfield in Germany today.
The fatal collision occurred above Schwäbisch Hall in the southern state of Baden-Württemberg.

Initial reports said the aircraft – a hobby aircraft and an microlight plane – were trying to land when they smashed into each other.
“They were on the approach, more I can’t say yet,” declared a police spokesman.
Apparently the pilot of the single engined aircraft was blinded by bright sunlight on his approach and crashed into the microlight machine. The dead are both pilots.
The microlight erupted into a fireball that was extinguished on the ground by the fire brigade.
