News Plane Crashes — 25 September 2017

Two World War II planes collided at the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show yesterday (September 23).

The P-51 Mustangs, American fighter bomber planes, clipped each others’ wing during a flight display and had to leave the air quickly.

This isn’t the first time this model has had technical difficulties.

In July this year, another P-51 Mustang plane made an emergency landing in a field close to the M11 after an aerial display went wrong.

Nobody was injured, but one of the aircraft was damaged during the collision.

A spokeswoman for IWM Duxford said: “At the Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show on Saturday, September 23, there was a minor incident as two Mustangs clipped in flight.

“Both aircraft landed safely and the pilots were unhurt.

“There was a small amount of damage to one of the aircraft.
