Two vintage military planes collided midair and nosedived to the ground in a fiery crash during an air show at Dallas Executive Airport on Saturday, killing all six people on board.
The World War II-era planes, a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra, collided in front of thousands of spectators around 1:20 p.m. at the Wings Over Dallas Airshow, according to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration. The FAA is now working with the National Transportation Safety Board to investigate the crash.
Judge Clay Jenkins, the Dallas County executive, confirmed the six deaths in a tweet, citing the medical examiner. The victims have not yet been identified. There were no paying customers on board the planes during the crash, and no spectators were harmed during the event.
