On Tuesday, November 20, two planes collided in mid-air over Washington. One of the planes landed safely at an airstrip nearby and the other plane crashed into Commencement Bay.
An officer from the Coast guard claimed that two people who crashed in the water were recovered by boaters, but their condition was not immediately known.
The other plane did not crash, but landed at the Thun Field in Puyallup, which is only a few miles from Tacoma. The plane had damage to its landing gear. None of the passengers on that plane were injured.
