Two planes crashed mid-air during a Dallas air show.

A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra collided and crashed around 1:32 p.m. local time at the Dallas Executive Airport, KXAS-TV reported.

Dallas Fire-Rescue reported an Alert 3 incident that happened at 5300 Challenger Dr. in Dallas where the airport is located.

A video posted on social media shows the fighter plane appearing to collide with the bomber, causing them to quickly crash to the ground, setting off a large ball of fire and smoke.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott confirmed the incident.

“Planes collide during [an] air show at Dallas Executive Airport,” he wrote in a Twitter post. “The Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Division of Emergency Management, and the Texas Department of Transportation are assisting local officials in responding to this tragedy.”

It was unclear how many people were on board or if anyone was killed or hurt.
