Two historic planes collided in mid-air at the Wings Over Dallas airshow Saturday afternoon after one appeared to veer into the blindspot of the other

Six crew members are feared to be dead, with the Allied Pilots Association confirming that Captains Terry Barker and Len Root, who are both part of the B-17 Texas Raiders team, were among the deceased

Videos posted online show the B-17 encroaching below the P-63 as the Kingcobra was banking right, so it would not have been able to prepare for the impending crash

Soon, the Kingcobra collided with the bomber, tearing it apart as the larger plane split in half and crashes in a ball of fire nearby, horrifying spectators
