excursions collided in mid - air over Southeast Alaska, officials said. Five people were killed, 10 others were injured and one person was unaccounted for Monday after two floatplanes carrying cruise passengers taking part in shore excursions collided in mid - air over Southeast Alaska, officials said.

There was no immediate information about a potential cause of the crash and the police would not release the names of the victims, saying they were still trying to locate family members.

Witnesses told New Zealand media that they heard a loud bang and saw the planes spiraling down.

Stuff.nz, a New Zealand news website, cited a local pilot instructor saying the aerodrome was unrestricted up to 9,500 feet, but pilots were required to record their movements through a shared radio channel.

One of the planes belonged to Skydive Wellington while the other to the Wairarapa Aero Club. The Hood Aerodrome is owned and operated by the Masterton District Council.

"We have a close-knit community at Hood Aerodrome and the incident has understandably rocked that community," the council said in a statement on its website.
