Two small airplanes collided midair at about 4 p.m. Sunday, leaving one pilot missing after one of the planes landed in the bay, Coast Guard spokeswoman Loumania Stewart said.


The collision happened over the northern part of the San Francisco Bay and involved a Cessna 210 and a Hawker Sea Fury TMK 20, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.


The Cessna crashed into the water, while the pilot of the Hawker was able to land safely at a small airport in Northern California about 40 minutes away and was reportedly uninjured along with his wife who was also in the plane.

This Is What A Professional Wrestling Script From The WWE Looks Like

SPOILERS: Professional wrestling is scripted.


In case you didn't know, professional wrestling is scripted and WWE scripts have found their way online in recent weeks.


In case you didn't know, professional wrestling is scripted and WWE scripts have found their way online in recent weeks.


The page above shows how a match is split up into "segments." It is for a match between Rob Van Dam (RVD) and Alberto Del Rio and shows how the match was scheduled to play out.


Notice halfway down the page where it says "Finish — RVD Over." This is code for "RVD is scheduled to win."


It follows up with "Music," which means the winning wrestler's music will play throughout the arena.


Next, is "Reactions," which means the camera will cut straight to crowd reactions after the three-count and music hits.

Watch the last few seconds of the match, played out exactly like the script calls for.

This Guy Just Went A Year Without Showering — And Isn't Turning Back

Rob Greenfield made friends, found romance, and had the adventure of a lifetime, all without a single shower.



Brett Martin / Via robgreenfield.tv


Greenfield set a few rules for himself on his ride, meant to promote sustainability and eco-friendly living: He could only harvest water from natural sources like rivers and rain, or from wasted sources like leaky faucets. He also had to keep track of exactly how much he used, hoping to show just how little he needed to get by.



Over his 100-day bike trip, Greenfield was able to use less than two gallons of water a day, or eight Nalgene bottles.
