DAYTON, Ohio (WHIO, FOX NEWS)- The Vectren Dayton Air Show has been cancelled for the day in the aftermath of a fiery crash Saturday afternoon, killing the pilot and stunt walker instantly, authorities said.
Wing walker Jane Wicker’s plane crashed just before 1 p.m. as she sat on top of the inverted 450 HP Stearman.

The plane burst into flames as it hit the ground. A fire truck was at the crash within seconds and the flames have been extinguished.

This was the third act at the 39th Vectren Dayton Air Show.



This is not the first crash at this air show, Veteran stunt pilot Jim LeRoy was killed when his stunt plane crashed and burned at the 2007 Vectren Dayton Air Show.
