U.S. Pilot Killed in Plane Crash at NY Air Show Practice


Police in New York say a single-engine aerobatic plane practicing ahead of the upcoming New York Air Show crashed Friday, killing the pilot.

The crash happened at around 2 p.m. local time at Stewart International Airport in New Windsor. The tail apparently broke off during a practice maneuver.

"What I saw was the aircraft come in for a dive. As it pulled up, it suddenly crossed the crowd line and spun towards the ground," aviation journalist Benjamin Granucci, a witness, wrote on social media.
