A fiery plane crash at an Ohio air show killed two people on Saturday, CNN affiliate WHIO reported.
A wing walker was performing on a Stearman biplane when it plunged to the ground, FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford said.
The plane crashed and exploded in a grassy area between two runways at the Vectren Dayton Air Show, Lunsford said.
Video from the CNN affiliate showed the plane in flames after it hit the ground.
In a statement on its website, the air show described the accident as fatal and said officials believe the two performers involved did not survive. No other injuries were reported, officials said.
Before the crash, an air show announcer described wing walker Jane Wicker balancing on the plane as it hurtled forward at 110 mph.
“You’re facing that wind and then you have to fight the wind, and then you have to get yourself back upright. … Watch this, Jane Wicker sitting on top of the world,” the announcer said.
