Had a lot of excitement here today. A P-51 & a B-24 collided at 20,000 ft. over the field today & we were just getting ready to take off for our other field and we saw a fellow coming down in a parachute & pieces of aluminum were falling all around. The crew chief picked up a piece & you could see it was a plane & the piece was all burned like by an explosion. Then we saw 3 others coming down out of the overcast. We took off and flew over the wreckage. It hit about 2 miles from the field. The fuselage had one motor on yet but the others were scattered & burned in the ground all around. All but the pilots of both machines got out alive. We are still standing by on our alert but the weather has been bad & it has been raining now for three days.
