The accident happened near the Aero County Airport in McKinney, Texas. Three people were aboard two small planes that collided near the airport for unknown reasons, one of the planes coming down onto Custer Street and another plane crashing into a nearby storage facility.
Three people were confirmed to have been killed in the tragic accident. Two of them have been identified as father and son Greg Barber and Tim Barber. The cause of the collision remains under investigation, but initial reports state the Aero County Airport does not have an air traffic controller, and relies on pilots to alert each other for take offs and landings.
