In this paper, we find equations that characterize locally projectively flat Finsler metrics in the form $F = (\alpha + \beta)^2/\alpha$, where $\alpha=\sqrt{a_{ij}y^iy^j}$ is a Riemannian metric and $\beta= b_i y^i$ is a $1$-form. Then we completely determine the local structure of those with constant flag curvature.
