STEAD, Nev. (AP) — Two planes made emergency landings after touching in midair while competing at the Reno National Air Races, but no one was hurt.

The Reno Gazette Journal reports race officials declared a "mayday" when the incident occurred about 10 a.m. Friday at Reno-Stead Airport north of Reno.

Event spokeswoman Valerie Glenn says the planes suffered some damage but landed safely and "everybody is just fine."

Glenn says the rest of the day's racing schedule was not affected. She says the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident.

The five-day competition continues through Sunday.

A pilot and 10 people on the ground were killed and more than 70 were injured when a plane crashed into the box seats in front of the grandstand in 2011.
