Pilot killed and three hurt in mid-air collision between two planes near Los Angeles: One crashes into mountains whilst other lands gently on nearby golf course

Two small airplanes apparently collided in midair over the Southern California mountains yesterday, sending one crashing into a rocky ridge while the second was able to maneuver a belly-flop landing on a nearby golf course.

Three people on the plane that landed on a fairway had minor injuries as stunned golfers looked on.

Rescuers searched for survivors from the fiery crash.
