According to the Federal Aviation Administration, on Saturday, November 12, 2022, around 1:20 pm, two historic military aircrafts (a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra) collided and crashed during the Commemorative Air Force Wings over Dallas Airshow, exploding into flames and sending black smoke into the sky. Dallas Fire Rescue told The Dallas Morning News that there were no reported injuries among people on the ground. Emergency crews arrived at the crash scene at the Dallas Executive Airport. Even though it was not clear how many people were on board, president of the company that puts on the airshow, Hank Coates, said that a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber (one of the planes) usually has a crew of 4 or 5 people, whereas a Bell P-63 Kingcobra fighter plane, has a single pilot. A team of National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators will arrive at the scene of the crash on Sunday, November 13, 2022. NTSB had taken control of the crash scene, with local police and fire rescue team to provide support.
