A vintage World War II Mustang fighter airplane crashed into a parking lot in Texas Saturday, killing the pilot and a passenger.

The aircraft was damaged and so were numerous vehicles in the parking lot of an apartment complex. Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Orlando Moreno, confirmed the deaths of the two passengers in the crash but could not identify them.

The crash happened in Fredericksburg, about 70 miles north of San Antonio when the P-51D Mustang fighter was returning from a flyover during a living history event at the National Museum of the Pacific War.

The Mustang was first built in 1940 and was used by the U.S. military during World War II and the Korean War.
