BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: Getting word from the Pentagon right now, Jamie McIntyre reporting that apparently there has been a collision, possibly in the air, possibly as a plane was landing -- this in Arizona, Marana Air Base is what we're -- the air park, rather, is what we are talking about right now.

The word indication we have, a U.S. military plane used by the Army's Gold Knights parachute demonstration team was involved with a collision with another aircraft, a civilian aircraft, said to be carrying sky diving team as well inside that aircraft. Again, Marana air park, just northwest of Tucson, Arizona.

The word we're getting right now is that the U.S. military members there from the Army's parachute team did get out safely out of that plane, but apparently in the civilian aircraft there is one casualty, one fatality, we are being told right now. Again, word out of Arizona right now, on the very latest on what's happening there. Jamie McIntyre following that from the Pentagon. We'll get more as soon as we can here at CNN.
