A small plane collided with a B-17 bomber in mid-air during the Wings Over Dallas air show in Texas on Saturday, video of the moment shows.

In one video, a small plane is seen crashing into a B-17 bomber, which then plummets to the ground before bursting into flame. It is unclear how many passengers were on the aircrafts and if anyone was injured.

“*viewer discretion advised* Video captures mid-air collision at Wings Over Dallas airshow at the Dallas Executive Airport. WFAA reports a B-17 was involved,” one Twitter user posted along with video of the scene.

Insider Paper shared another angle of the incident, which provided a closer look at the mid-air collision.

WFAA reporter Jason Whitely tweeted that debris from the collision was reportedly found on Highway 67 in Oak Cliff.

Earlier this year, one flight crew member was killed and two more were injured after a U.S. Navy E-2D Hawkeye crashed off the coast of Virginia.

The E-2D tactical airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft crashed near NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Chincoteague, Virginia. According to previous local public safety radio, emergency responders said they had recovered two passengers at the scene in the water with injuries. Those two passengers were recovered via boat and transported to the hospital. At least one of the two passengers was reported to have broken legs.
