Warbird Crash

Two P-51 Mustangs approach the southern end of Runway 18/36 at AirVenture Oshkosh for what appeared to be a formation landing when the propeller of one Mustang caught the tail of the other, flipping it onto its nose. The P-51A in the rear collided with the P-51D in front and flipped over in the process. The pilot of the P-51D that ended up on its nose was able to walk away from the crash, the pilot of the green and silver P-51A was killed. (AirVenture 2007)
