The plane collision occurred over Slovakia's Cerveny Kamen village and local media reported that "sports planes" were involved in the accident. 

One aircraft was reportedly an Let L-410 Turbolet. 

The planes were reportedly carrying about 40 parachutists at the time of the collision, Slovakian Markiza TV station has reported. 

The collision occurred when the planes were flying at an altitude of 1,500 meters. 

 The site of the crash was just 30 km from Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. 

Some of the parachutists had already jumped of the planes moments before the accident and were saved, The Associated Press reported.
