As part of the Wings Over Dallas Airshow, a mid-air collision occurred on Saturday afternoon at Dallas Executive Airport.
A number of emergency crews responded to the incident at the Dallas Executive Airport during the Commemorative Air Force Wings Over Dallas event. This is according to the FAA. A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra collided and crashed Saturday around 1:20 p.m.
No information was available regarding the number of passengers on either plane. There are no reports of injuries on the ground or the status of the pilots, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue.
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board announced that they would investigate the incident.
In his tweet, Mayor Eric Johnson said, “As many of you have now seen, there was a terrible tragedy during an airshow today in our city.” At this time, there are many details that are unknown or unconfirmed. Currently, the @NTSB is in charge of the crash scene, with @DallasPD and @DallasFireRes continuing to provide support.” He added, “The videos are heartbreaking. Please, say a prayer for the souls who took to the sky to entertain and educate our families today.”
During the airshow, World War Two planes were displayed and demonstrated so people could “relive history.”
It is not the first plane crash this month. In Buenos Aires, Argentina, an air show plane crashed last week.
In the course of performing stunts, one plane made a mistake by cutting too close to the line. A video shows the shocking moment when an airplane crashed into a metal radio antenna on Nov. 5, 2022.
There were a lot of stunts and airplanes at the event.
The collision was not anticipated nor was it expected that observers would be injured.
As the camera pans back, several planes perform stunts at the festival before an aircraft approaches from behind, eventually hitting the antenna.
There is a video showing a metal antenna breaking and falling, damaging the wing.
As a result of the unexpected impact, the DHC-1 Chipmunk plane made an emergency landing.
The pilot did not suffer any injuries as a result of the hit.
On the other hand, some spectators suffered injuries.
During a frightening encounter, falling debris injured four spectators. They were treated onsite and taken to a local hospital.
The collision was documented in many videos posted online.
