RENO, Nev. – A vintage World War Two fighter plane crashed near the grandstand at a Nevada air race Friday, killing at least two people, including the elderly pilot, and injuring more than 50 others, officials said.

At least 15 people were in critical condition after the crash at the Reno Air Races, which a spokesman for the event called a “mass casualty situation” in a written statement.

The plane, a P-51 Mustang dubbed the “Galloping Ghost” that was being flown by pilot Jimmy Leeward, crashed into a box seat area in front of the main grandstand about 4:20 p.m. local time , said Mike Draper of the public relations firm R&R Partners, which represents the race. SOURCE: CALGARY SUN
