Plane destroyed in Dallas Air Show crash visited Gulfport in May

The horrifying weekend Air Show crash in Dallas likely hits home for some South Mississippians.

The B-17 Flying Fortress involved in the accident was on the Coast for an air show about six months ago.

This is video of when it was stationed in Gulfport at Million Air Airport as part of a commemorative Air Force air show.

Some people even had the opportunity to board the World War II era aircraft and experience it in-flight.

The B-17 and a Bell P-63 King Cobra collided in midair, claiming the lives of six people.
