Another B-17 destroyed by a disorganized air show in Texas killing 6 people as P-63 pilot flew right into the B=17-total incompetence by the P-63 pilot. Why have several planes flying around in circles totally ignoring every safety rule in the book----the pilots love showing off and end up killing themselves and innocents and putting these old planes thru dangerous maneuvres. The B-17 was flying straight ahead when this jackass moron P-63 pilot flew right into him killing 5 innocent men. These planes are priceless-we cant continue to destroy them at airshows by organizers who are only interested in making money rather than ensuring safety. There have been so many of these vintage planes destroyed for absolutely no reason other than total incompetence by airshow organizers and stupid pilots. This crap never ends!!!!!!

NTSB will analyze this mishap, but this video gives good info as to what might have happened ( do not judge too quickly, these pilots have years of experience flying in those type of airshows)
