Airshow Accident at Dallas Executive Airport in Dallas, Texas

November 14, 2022

DALLAS, TEXAS - An accident news article published on reports that two antique military aircrafts collided in midair during an air show in Dallas, Texas.*

Witnesses stated that two planes crashed into each other and exploded into a ball of flames. The report did not say how many people were involved in the aviation accident. 

According to the accident report, emergency rescue crews responded to the aviation accident at the Dallas Executive Airport. News footage showed the crumpled airplane wreckage inside the airport's perimeter. Dallas Fire-Rescue reported no injuries among the audience watching from the ground. However, accident injuries may be reported at a later time. 

A witness who saw the two airplanes collide stated that they were feeling complete shock and disbelief. The witness said that they were watching the show with a friend. According to the eyewitness, everyone around the crash was gasping and bursting into tears. 

Law enforcement officials did not state how many individuals were aboard the airplanes. However, Hank Coates, the president of the organization that arranged the airshow, stated that one of the airplanes, a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber, usually has at least four people on board. The other plane, a P-63 Kingcobra fighter plane, had a single pilot. According to Coates, no paying customers were aboard the aircraft at the time of the crash. 

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson reported that the National Transportation Safety Board had taken control of the accident scene, with local fire and law enforcement providing support. National Transportation Safety Board investigators arrived at the airport and began the aviation accident investigation. 

The two airplanes crashed at around 1:20 PM, the Federal Aviation Administration reported in their official statement. The aviation crash happened during the "Commemorative Air Force Wings Over Dallas" airplane show.

Several videos that were posted on social media appeared to show the P-63 Kingcobra fighter plane flying into the B-17 Flying Fortress bomber, causing them to quickly crash to the ground and setting off a large ball of fire and smoke. 

Air show safety has been a serious safety concern for many years. In 2011, at an airshow in Reno, Nevada, a P-51 Mustang crashed into spectators and tragically killed 11 people. In 2019, an airshow in  Hartford, Connecticut, had an accident involving a bomber. The bomber crashed and tragically killed seven people. The National Transportation Safety Board reported that it had investigated more than 20 aviation accidents since 1982.

The Federal Aviation Administration is also launching its own aviation accident investigation. The names of the aviation accident victims have not been made public at this time. This accident news story will be updated after additional information is released.
