RICHMOND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say they have located the wreckage of a small plane that crashed into San Francisco Bay after colliding with another aircraft.

Contra Costa County sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said crews located the Cessna on Monday but could not immediately say whether the pilot was also found.

The search began Sunday afternoon when the Cessna 210 and a Hawker Sea Fury TMK 20 collided in mid-air.

The pilot of the vintage airplane landed safely, but the Cessna crashed into the water.

The names of the pilots haven't been released. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
