2 dead after WWII vintage plane crashes in Fredericksburg, officials say

Two people who were flying in a vintage World War II fighter plane on Saturday afternoon are dead after the aircraft crashed into the parking lot of a Fredericksburg apartment complex, officials said.

Gillespie County sheriff’s officials said they were called to the crash at 3:15 p.m., which occurred at the Friendship Place Apartments on the 700 block of South Creek Street.
