US: Two Planes Collide During Airshow, 6 Killed

Dallas (USA): Two World War II planes collided during an air show in Dallas, USA. Air Force said – 6 people were present in both the planes. Everyone died.

The incident occurred during "America's Premier World War II Airshow," which was reportedly Veterans Day weekend, where guests were to see more than 40 World War II-era aircraft.

The video of the collision of both the planes is going viral on social media. It can be seen in the video that during the air show, a plane comes very fast and collides with another plane. After this, some pieces of both the planes are seen falling in the air. As soon as the planes fall on the earth, there is an explosion immediately and smoke is visible all around.

The cause of the accident is not yet known: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said - 2 planes used during the Second World War crashed in this accident. One of these is Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and the other is Bell P-63 Kingcobra. At present, information about the cause of the accident has not been received. Our investigative agency and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will investigate the accident.

US media reports said the B-17 is an immense four-engine bomber, and was a cornerstone of U.S. air power during World War II. The majority of B-17s were scrapped at the end of World War II and only a handful remain now.
