Witnesses said the two planes collided at low altitude on the water at around 14:20 p.m. and crashed into Powderhorn Bay. John Cowles said in an interview that he was at the lake with his family at the time of the crash.

Mr. Kaurs said he saw what appeared to be an “engine explosion” on a water plane flying less than 200 feet (61 meters) high. Then one of the wings of the plane separated and the plane fell into the water.

Reported that the crash edified aircraft are single-engine seaplanes, at the height of more than 200 meters. One of the pilots, who was among the witnesses, said that judging by the roar of the engine, the speed should have been not low.
