A crash in Reno on Friday killed at least 9, injured over 50. Crash in West Virginia on Saturday, just the pilot down, I believe.

Well more Americans died in the crash than Americans who starved in the East African famine this year, so it deserves more coverage.

@Klams the death tole is now 9. There may have been only 3 deaths at the time of the collision, but there were over 50 people injured. Casualties are usually those injured...

Well, if you`re 80 then what a way to go!
I mean, I don`t want to rush death on anyone {mostly} but when you`re at the jumping-off-point you might as well go out living instead of sitting around waiting for it in some dirty nursing home.

So I say, sorry you`re dead and YOU GO GRANPA!

osirisascend: I`m apt to believe your analysis, I was watching the live submissions list and was the 1st to submit a link about the crash, then two others linked to it an hour later.

As I figure it, at least it got posted, a lot of good submissions, to IAB, these days don`t even get a 2nd look.

Anyone else notice the title says "Airplane Crash Reno,Nevada Air Show: Fri, Sept 16" and the description says "at a West Virginia air show"

Strange for there to be casualties at a state fair and then at an airshow, but not at a gun show. Has there been an incident at a gun show lately? If not, I`d keep a sharp eye out for one.

@ Oldfrt: Thank you for that. Lately it`s like the Idiot Brigade has taken over IAB. The number of inane, inaccurate, and flat-out wrong link descriptions seems to be reaching an all-time high.

Of course, considering the fact that this submission came from a "new" account leads me to believe it could possibly be an IAB ploy to increase clicks by starting a discussion, argument, or flame war.

kameo360fan: Some of it is, eyewitnesses said people had lost limbs and said the scene was "blood and gore".

The description just angers me, why even post one if you have no idea what you`re talking about? It`s better to appear misinformed than be an idiot.

Isn`t this the whole reason why people attend air shows in the first place? The crowd should be cheering.

Actually, he was 74 years old. They don`t let just anyone fly in the Reno races. There are many qualifications and evaluations before they allow someone to enter. I seriously doubt his age had nothing to do with the crash.

[quote]Word is that the pilot tried an inverted aerial and I guess blacked out. Then came down nose diving.[/quote]

As a pilot, it drives me nuts when people spread this kind of talk around. First, in air races are just like car races in one respect: Go fast, turn left. There would be no reason to try an "inverted aerial", which isn`t even a proper name of a maneuver. Second, The pilot pitched up first, which is standard air race procedure when you have a mechanical problem. In all likelihood, the pilot knew there was a problem and was trying to regain control when he crashed. That`s not something you can do when you are blacked out.

I don`t have a problem with people speculating about what happened, but if you speculate in public, at least have some basis in reality.

Wow. Not only did he die but he also hit people watching and some of them died too. I hope none of the other seriously injured people die, how tragic :(
