BOULDER, Colorado  — An airplane towing a glider and another plane collided in Colorado, sending the two planes crashing into the ground and killing at least three people Saturday, authorities said.




One of the aircraft clipped the towline of the plane that was pulling the glider, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura Brown said. The glider apparently disconnected and landed safely a short time later, according to the FAA.




An amateur video shot at the scene showed a plane tumbling to the ground trailing thick, black smoke and a parachute.




One witness, Christian Sterner, said he saw two big balls of flames, including one attached to a parachute that then fell slowly to the ground.
