In a shocking incident, two pilots were killed in a mid-air collision during an air race in Reno in the US state of Nevada.

The Reno Air Racing Association (RARA) said the two planes collided as they were landing at the conclusion of the T-6 Gold race.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), only the pilots of each plane were involved in the crash.
