The 11 survivors of a midair collision above Superior on Saturday evening took to the sky again Sunday, en route to New York City and a likely appearance this morning on national television.


They’re set to appear on NBC’s “Today” show and plan to tell the harrowing story of a skydiving outing gone wrong. They also may share footage of the events shot via helmet-mounted video cameras — cameras that captured the frantic seconds as two small planes collided at 12,000 feet.
