TRAPPER CREEK, Alaska (AP) — The Federal Aviation Administration says two airplanes have collided above Alaska.

The Alaska state patrol says the accident happened Saturday afternoon near Trapper Creek, with at least one plane crashing to the ground after the collision.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor told The Associated Press no other details were immediately available, including how many people were aboard the planes.

Earlier this month, two small planes collided in midair along a narrow and treacherous mountain corridor in Alaska. No one was injured.
