Police say four people have been killed after a helicopter and small plane collided in western Germany.

Police say the two aircraft collided near the town of Ellwangen, east of Stuttgart, on Sunday afternoon.

Police say the helicopter crashed to the ground after the collision, bursting into flames and killing all four people aboard.

The plane's motor went out, but the pilot was able to glide it in for an emergency landing. The pilot was the only person aboard, and survived with serious injuries.
