Planes collide in Colorado, 4 dead

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration says a plane towing a glider and another aircraft collided in Colorado, killing at least two people.

FAA spokesman Mike Fergus says the glider, described as a
sail-plane, apparently disconnected after the Saturday afternoon collision and landed safely a short time later.

Fergus says the two small planes crashed.

Witnesses reported smoldering wreckage in at least three areas on the prairie north of Boulder, which sits at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

Aquina Rogers, a worker at a storage facility in the area, said she could see a wing in one of the wreckage fields.
