Some of the sky divers weren’t immediately comfortable talking about Saturday’s experience, Rodorigo said. But there was talk Sunday of flying occupants of both planes to New York to share their story on national television.

Saturday’s incident left several of the jumpers in “rough emotional states,” but Robinson said he would be surprised if any stopped sky diving.

“Right now, we don’t have any planes [at Skydive Superior],” he said. “One’s damaged, the other destroyed.

“But I’ll have no hesitation to get back up there.”
