A Dallas airshow dubbed the world's largest featuring World War II aircraft ended in tragedy as two planes collided at low altitude, cutting one of the planes in half. Six people died in the accident.
An eyewitness told the BBC, "It went from being a fairly excited, energetic crowd... to complete silence and stillness, and a lot of people, including myself, turned their children towards them and away from the airfield because there was burning wreckage in the middle of the airfield."
Nobody on the ground was hurt. A soviet P-63 Kingcobra fighter and an American made B-17 bomber were the two planes the struck each other in mid-air in front of thousands. The FAA will be investigating.
