Three of Four People Killed in Mid-Air Plane Crash Were Flight Instructors, NTSB Says

Three of the four people killed in a mid-air plane collision north of Phoenix late last month were certified flight instructors, according to a preliminary National Transportation Safety Board report.

The NTSB report says the planes were on a similar path the morning of May 31, before they both made turns toward one another and collided.
