The planes collided yesterday afternoon in Ketchikan as part of a Princess Cruises excursion.

In total there were 16 people aboard the two planes.

First responders worked with state and federal authorities to locate passengers.

10 of the passengers were taken to the hospital and were all considered in fair or good condition.

Again, NTSB investigators are expected to arrive in Alaska this afternoon to look for the cause of the crash.

The sight-seeing company has now suspended all flights and said they will cooperate fully in the investigation.
