Sept. 16, Reno: Tragedy at the Air Show

For those who haven't heard, there was a crash yesterday at the Reno Air Show.  It seems as though a mechanical failure was to blame when a P-51 Mustang Galloping Ghost plummeted out of the sky Friday afternoon and crashed into the viewer grandstands.  ABC News

Changing estimates are now that 9 are dead, and over 50 more suffered injuries.  Initial estimates did not account for those who were rushed to hospitals in private vehicles.

  1. My buddy Wayne was at this airshow. I'm glad that he is heading home, but sad to hear that one of his friends is no longer with us.

    I love ya buddy.
