Two World War II Era Planes Have Midair Collision in Dallas!
By Mark Schwendau
There has been an incident at the Dallas Executive Airport during the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Airshow and Dallas Fire and Rescue is responding. Videos are now widely circulating on the Internet as follows:
“Midair collision” – NorCal Aviation
The videos appear to show a Bell P-63 Kingcobra come up and above from behind a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress when the Kingcobra collided and cuts through the top of the B-17. The two aircraft crashed leaving no survivors at the Wings Over Dallas Airshow in Texas at around 1:20 p.m. local time Saturday. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said. “At this time, it is unknown how many people were on both aircraft.”
This particular B-17 is known for giving rides to the public for a fee but this particular flight no show attendees were believed to be onboard as this was a war reenactment.
It is not know why the Kingcobra seemingly plunged into the B-17.
