Two planes crashed in fiery mid-air collision while flying in a Dallas air show on Saturday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration and Dallas City Fire and Rescue. 

The crash occurred around 1:20 p.m., when the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra collided at the Wings Over Dallas Airshow at Dallas Executive Airport, according to information provided by the FAA. 

It is unknown how many people were on the aircrafts, the FAA said.

Representatives for Dallas City Hall, the airport and the air show did not immediately respond to inquiries from NBC News. 

Emergency crews raced to the crash scene at the Dallas Executive Airport, about 10 miles from the city’s downtown.

Live TV news footage from the scene showed people setting up orange cones around the crumpled wreckage of the bomber, which was in a grassy area.
