Two World War-era planes collided mid-air during an airshow at Texas’s Dallas Executive Airport on Saturday.
Six flight crew members are feared dead as planes immediately fell off to the ground and burst into flames. The collision happened between a Boeing B-17 bomber, which was widely used during World War 2, and a smaller plane.
The condition of the pilots in both aircraft is yet to be determined, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was quoted as saying.
Authorities say that the accident occurred during the Commemorative Air Force Wings Over Dallas event at Dallas Executive Airport in Texas on Saturday afternoon.
