Tragic: B-17 and P-51 collide at Dallas Air Show


Recommended Posts




This is awful.  Prayers for the souls of all aboard.

A P-63 Kingcobra flew into the B-17 Texas Raiders.  The Kingcobra was banking hard and probably didn't see the Fortress until it was way too late.  The Fortress broke in half at about the waist gunner position, and immediately crashed.  There will be no survivors, I'm certain of that.  


Initial reports said it was a P-51 Mustang, but apparently it was not.  Sorry for the inaccurate title.  GB1`
