FREDERICKSBURG, TEXAS - The FAA says a vintage World War II fighter plane with two people aboard has crashed into the parking lot of an apartment complex in Fredericksburg, Texas.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the aircraft was destroyed and several automobiles damaged.

He did not say what happened to the two people on board.

The World War II P-51D Mustang fighter crashed about 3:15 p.m. Saturday.

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

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA were headed to the crash site about 70 miles (113 kilometers) north of San Antonio.
