LONGMONT, Colo. -- You've seen the wreckage. Now, for the first time, we're hearing the 911 calls after, investigators say two planes hit each other over Longmont, and then crashed.

"I'm working two planes crashes right now, so just call us back in a few," says a 911 dispatcher late Friday morning.

"We're at the corner of 119 and County Road 1, we just saw a plane go down," says one caller.

Thirty-year-old pilot Ryan Brungardt and 64-year-old student Edward Omohundro died at one scene near a Wal-Mart. Beverly Cameron, 72, was the pilot of the other plane which crashed into a fence at the Longmont Public Works facility, next to the Longmont airport.

"There's a lady. They pulled her out of the plane. She's conscious. She's awake," says a public works employee who called for help.

The National Transportation Safety Board continues its investigation.
