A privately-owned vintage fighter plane that saw action during World War II and the Korean War crashed into the parking lot of an apartment complex during a re-enactment show in Fredericksburg, Texas, about 70 miles north of San Antonio. Two people on board died in the incident.
The P-51D Mustang went down on Saturday, during the WWII Pacific Combat Programme event organised by the National Museum of the Pacific War. The museum later confirmed that both people on the plane, one of which was a military veteran, had been killed.
The aircraft was destroyed and several vehicles in the parking lot damaged.
The Mustang was first built by North American Aviation in 1940 and was used by the U.S. military in World War II and the Korean War.
