One of the Collings Foundation B-17s crashed this morning at Bradley Int’l Airport in Connecticut.
Witnesses say the WWII-era bomber hit a shed during a landing attempt, and multiple injuries have been reported. Numerous fire departments have been called to the airport, Connecticut’s largest, and more than two dozen emergency vehicles are on-scene.
Edit: Authorities now report two deaths, one critically injured flown to hospital, and at least five more transported via ambulance.
Eyewitness report, YMMV:
“He was treetop level when I saw him,” Nolan said. “And one of the engines wasn’t spinning.”
