Aircraft collide during World War II airshow at US airport


Two aircraft crashed on Saturday during a World War II airshow at the Dallas executive airport in the United States.


According to videos of the incident posted on social media platforms, a plane crashed into another mid-air, after which both planes fell to the ground and went up in flames seconds later.


In a statement on Saturday by the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), a non-profit organisation focused on the preservation of aircraft used for combat during World War II, the status of those on board has not yet been determined.


“This afternoon, two aircraft were involved in a mid-air collision at Dallas Executive Airport. The aircraft were a B-17 Flying Fortress and P-63 Kingcobra, both out of Houston,” the statement reads.


 “Currently we do not have information on the status of the flight crews as emergency responders are working the accident.


“The Commemorative Air Force is working with local authorities, the FAA, and the NTSB will conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident.”


The WWII airshow, organised by the CAF, is expected to end on November 13.
