No injuries as helicopter, plane collide
Rio Vista - Officials say a small aeroplane and a helicopter landed safely after making contact in the air in the San Francisco Bay Area and there are no reports of any injuries.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson Ian Gregor says the six-seat Beechcraft Bonanza and the two-seat Robinson R22 helicopter collided Sunday near the small Rio Vista Municipal Airport 80km northeast of Oakland.
No specifics on the crash were released.
Gregor says the helicopter landed in a field about 13km south of the airport, and the aeroplane went down short of the Byron Airport where it was trying to land 32.19km to the south.
Gregor says there are no reports of injuries on either the aeroplane or the helicopter, and the helicopter pilot refused medical treatment.
It's not clear how many people were aboard the two aircraft.
