“Two vintage World War Two-era planes have collided and crashed at an air show in the US state of Texas, killing six people. Footage shows the aircraft striking each other at a low altitude, breaking one of the aircraft in half. A fireball can be seen as it hits the ground. The planes — one of them a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress — were taking part in a commemorative air show near Dallas. Firefighters said there were no injuries among people on the ground. ‘According to our Dallas County Medical Examiner, there are a total of six fatalities from yesterday’s Wings over Dallas air show incident,’ Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said in a tweet on Sunday. The Allied Pilots Association, which represents American Airlines pilots, said Terry Barker and Len Root — two of its former members — were among those who died in the collision.” (11/13/22)
