Two World War II planes crashed into the ground during an air show in Dallas this Saturday, U.S. officials said, with no casualties reported yet. A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber and a Bell B-63 King Cobra fighter jet collided around 1:20 p.m. (8:20 p.m. in Paris), the FAA said in a statement.
“At this point we don’t know how many people were on board,” the FAA said, adding that it was investigating.
Firefighters on site
Witnesses have posted videos of the crash, which show one of the planes disintegrating before hitting the ground.
“Dallas Executive” Airport, located ten kilometers south of the Texas metropolis, was the subject of an “incident” organized as part of the long weekend of November 11th during a 1940s show of military aircraft.
Firefighters said they were dispatched to the scene. But no other information is available at this stage.
