Plane with wing walker crashes at Ohio air show

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Media outlets are reporting that a stunt plane carrying a wing walker has crashed at an air show in western Ohio.

The crash happened Saturday afternoon at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton. A schedule posted on the event’s website had Jane Wicker Wingwalker scheduled to perform.

A fire dispatcher confirmed a crash Saturday to The Associated Press but had no other information.

The Dayton Daily News and several TV stations say the plane burst into flames when it hit the ground. A fire truck extinguished the blaze.

There was no immediate word on the fate of the pilot, wing walker or anyone else aboard the plane. No one on the ground was hurt.

A spokeswoman for the Vectren Air Show near Dayton didn’t immediately return a telephone message.
