BREAKING: Horrifying video shows moment WWII-era fighter plane collides with B-17 bomber mid-air during Dallas airshow

Horrifying video shows the moment that two World War II-era airplanes collided mid-air during an airshow in Texas.

According to initial reports, two planes crashed into each other while flying above Dallas around 2:30 p.m. EST on Saturday. The planes were reportedly part of the Commemorative Air Force’s Wings Over Dallas Show.

Video reportedly shows a Bell P-63 Kingcobra fighter plane colliding with a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber as it flew at a low altitude over the airfield at Dallas Executive Airport. The planes break into pieces and then crash to the ground. A large and fiery explosion followed and black smoke billowed into the sky.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released a statement on the aircraft collision in Dallas:

A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra collided and crashed at the Wings Over Dallas Airshow at Dallas Executive Airport in Texas around 1:20 p.m. local time Saturday. At this time, it is unknown how many people were on both aircraft. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate. The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation and will provide additional updates.

There were over 40 fire rescue units deployed to the scene, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue (DFR).

There are no reports about if the crew survived or if there were any injuries or casualties on the ground.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbot said of the airshow crash, “Planes collide during air show at Dallas Executive Airport. The Texas Dept. of Public Safety, Texas Division of Emergency Management, and the Texas Dept. of Transportation are assisting local officials in responding to this tragedy.”
