Duluth, MN (KDAL) - One of the 11 people who walked away without serious injury after the planes they riding in collided in mid-air says the ordeal was "surreal", adding that she does expect to go skydiving again.  Sarah Perrine tells KDAL News, Saturday was like any other day when she and 10 others ventured out for a day of skydiving.  That evening as she was preparing to make another of her more than 400 jumps she says she saw her plane approach and collide with the lead plane.  In the collision of the Cesna’s, Perrine’s hand became lodged between the wings of the aircraft, which is where the fuel is stored.  She recalls seeing the explosion and feeling the heat against her hand.  Upon coming loose she says in free-fall she attempted to track away from debris.  Now Perrine and her fellow skydivers are in New York City and will appear this morning on N-B-C’s ‘Today’ Show.  They will also tell their stories on the program ‘Dateline’.
