Paramedics have confirmed that one person is dead after two planes crashed in mid-air in the west end of Ottawa just past 10:00 a.m. Sunday.

Ottawa police have confirmed one aircraft was able to be redirected to the Ottawa International Airport, while the smaller of the two planes crashed into a field.

Police and paramedics are on scene.

A section of McGee Side Road, between the westbound off ramp of Highway 417 and William Mooney Road, was closed for almost 24 hours, but has since been re-opened.
