Breaking News: Terrible accident between airshow in America, collision between bomber plane and small plane, video viral

Two Boeing B-17 bombers and a small plane collided in the air in the US city of Dallas on Saturday. Both planes immediately fell to the ground and turned into fireballs. According to the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the condition of the pilots of the two planes is not yet clear.
Video captured by airshow attendees shows a large B-17 bomber in flight. He is not very high off the ground and is flying in a straight line. While a smaller Bell P-63 Kingcobra changes direction and comes from the left side, it hits the bomber directly and disintegrates.
After this collision, the World War II B-17 bomber plummets straight down and turns into a fireball within seconds.
The Associated Press reported that the incident occurred during a Dallas show of Air Force commemorative feathers. It has been reported that the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board have launched an investigation into the incident.
The four-engine B-17 bomber was instrumental in winning the air war against Germany in World War II. It is one of the most produced bombers ever produced with a workhorse reputation. The P-63 Kingcobra was a fighter aircraft produced by Bell Aircraft during the same war. The Soviet Air Force also used it in combat.
One of the last major B-17 accidents occurred on October 2, 2019, when an airport crash in Windsor Locks, Connecticut killed seven people.
