SUPERIOR, Wis. - The skydive company that owned two planes that collided in far northwest Wisconsin was effectively put out of business.

But the Duluth News Tribune reports the skydivers are attempting to revive it by selling the helmet cam and other footage video shot Nov. 2 near Lake Superior. None of the nine skydivers or two pilots sustained serious injury.

Mark Androsky, whose family owns Skydive Superior, says the company carried liability insurance, but couldn't afford to insure the planes themselves.

The skydivers sold their video to NBC, which has the exclusive rights for the first two weeks. Androsky says the exact amount is still being negotiated.

After that, the video can be offered to other buyers.

Androsky estimated it would take $150,000 to repair one plane and replace the other.
