DALLAS, TX. (THECOUNT) — Officials have identified the six people killed in a mid-air collision between two vintage military aircraft at a Dallas air show on Saturday.
The victims are: Terry Barker, Craig Hutain, Kevin “K5” Michels, Dan Ragan, Leonard “Len” Root, and Curt Rowe.
All six aboard the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra were killed Saturday during a Veterans’ Day air show hosted by the Commemorative Air Force.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the collision, including why both aircraft were flying at the same altitude and in the same air space, NTSB member Michael Graham said at a Sunday news conference.
“We’ll look at everything that we can and we’ll let the evidence basically lead us to the appropriate conclusions. At this point, we will not speculate” on the cause, Graham said.
A preliminary report from the NTSB is expected in four to six weeks, while a final report will take up to 18 months to complete.
