HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) - Investigators continue to search for answers to why two small planes collided in midair over the Florida Everglades, killing four people.

The National Transportation Safety Board says pieces of the small planes will be reassembled to try to determine their positions during the Saturday collision while air safety investigators study radar tapes.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman says authorities
believe the planes collided because their wreckage was found very
close together and both seemed headed for a remote flight-training
area.

Four bodies were recovered Monday in the cockpits.

The planes departed Saturday from Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood
airports.

The wreckage was spotted the next morning about 25 miles west of Fort Lauderdale.
