Horror as two planes collide mid air

Two historic military planes have collided during an airshow in the US city of Dallas.

The planes – a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber and a P-63 Kingcobra fighter – crashed into each other at around 1.20pm local time.

They were part of the Commemorative Air Force Wings Over Dallas show being held about 10 miles from the city centre.

Officials have not said how many people were on board, but the B-17 usually carries a crew of four or five people, while the Kingcobra has a single pilot.

Dallas Morning News said there were no reported injuries among people on the ground.
