Dallas air show: Two world war era planes collide mid-air, six feared dead
New Delhi : Two World War-era planes were seen colliding mid-air during an airshow at Texas’s Dallas Executive Airport on Saturday. According to media reports, six crew members were present in the planes when this accident happened. All of them are feared dead as the planes were shattered into particles, followed by a huge blast and fire in the body of the planes.
The collision happened between a Boeing B-17 bomber, which was widely used during World War 2, and a smaller plane Kingcobra.
The Kingcobra, coming from another side, crashed with the B-17 and set off a huge ball of fire and smoke. The Kingcobra is a US fighter plane and was used mostly by Soviet forces during the war. The B-17 is a four-engine bomber used in raids against Germany during World War 2.
The video of the accident are being shared on the internet by the spectators of the show.
In a tweet, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson said that there were still details that remained “unknown or unconfirmed”.
