Very heavy toll in the United States after a spectacular collision between planes of the Second World War during an air show

Six people died in a World War II plane crash Saturday at an air show in Dallas, Texas, a judge said Sunday citing the Dallas County Medical Examiner.

A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber and a Bell P-63 KingCobra fighter collided in the air on Saturday afternoon, the aviation regulator, the FAA, said in a statement earlier.

“At this stage we do not know how many people were on board”then added the FAA, while the mayor of Dallas Eric Johnson indicated on Twitter that“no spectators or anyone on the ground were injured”.

Witnesses have uploaded videos of the accident, in one of which one of the devices appears to break up before hitting the ground.

Dallas Executive Airport, located about ten kilometers south of the Texas metropolis, spoke on Twitter of a “incident” at a 1940s military aircraft show, held as part of the November 11 holiday long weekend.
