    Posting this in case some of the forum members haven't heard the unfortunate news yet. A very sad day again for the warbird community as two WW2 veteran aircraft collide with each other at the Wings Over Dallas airshow in the US.

    I chose not to post any graphic pictures of the accident but the preliminary statement published by the FAA. Sending my thoughts across the pond(s) to everyone involved.

    Have just seen the footage of this incident. Truly horrific, and a sad loss of two WWII aircraft, though obviously that pales in comparison to the tragedy of those lives lost. Rest in peace to all those involved, my thoughts are with the victims' families.

    Indeed awful, and not only to us militaria/history folks but naturally also to the local communities and the many families affected by this. Very horrible.
