A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress bomber and a Bell P-63 KingCobra fighter collided in midair this Saturday in the United States. The collision took place at the small Dallas Executive Airportat a 1940s military aircraft show held as part of the November 11 holiday long weekend.
Witnesses posted videos of the accident online. On one of them, one of the devices seems to dislocate before hitting the ground, killing the occupants of these. Fortunately, no spectators or people on the ground were injured.
“We see on the images that the P-63 fighter makes a not very tight turn and that the B-17 bomber is hidden by its wing, by the design of its plane. He is exactly in the blind spot, ”analyzes Pierre-Henry Chuet, a former fighter pilot. “This trajectory error may be due to a lack of situational awareness”, continues the one who is also known as “Até” on YouTube.
