DEVELOPING STORY: At least six people are feared dead after a mid-air collision between two vintage aircraft at the Dallas Air Show.
The Federal Aviation Administration said the two aircrafts that collided and crashed at Wings Over Dallas Airshow today were a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra.
The accident took place around 1:20 p.m. during the Commemorative Air Force’s Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow. There were between 4,000 to 6,000 spectators at the show.
