US man killed after his plane collides with girlfriend's

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A pilot was communicating by radio with her boyfriend before their planes collided in the air over Alaska last week, killing him, a federal investigator said. The two pilots took off from different western Alaska villages on Friday but met up in the air on the way to Bethel, Alaska, National Transportation Safety Board investigator Clint Johnson told the Anchorage Daily News Sunday. Kristen Sprague, 26, was flying a Cessna 207 operated by rural freight carrier Ryan Air, according to Alaska State Troopers. She made an emergency landing with one airplane wing seriously damaged and wasn't hurt. The other plane, a Cessna 208 Caravan, crashed and burst into flames Friday at about 1.30pm local time near the village of Nightmute, Alaska, about 640km west of Anchorage, Alaska, killing Scott Veal, 24, of Kenai, Alaska. Each was the only person onboard.
