WWII-era plane crashes at air show in W.Va.

Posted: Updated:

A West Virginia Air National Guard spokesman said a World War II-era plane has crashed at an air show Saturday afternoon.

Lt. Nathan Mueller says the T-28 aircraft crashed during a routine at a Martinsburg airfield. Mueller did not have any details on the pilot's condition.

Officials said they did not immediately know of any injured spectators.

The plane was performing during the Thunder Over the Blue Ridge air show.

The Journal of Martinsburg reports the aircraft lost control during a six-plane stunt formation and then crashed on a runway.

The crash comes a day after a stunt pilot lost control of his World War II-era plane at a Nevada air show, crashing near a VIP section in a wreck that killed nine and sent dozens to the hospital.
