Martinsburg Air Show crash
These 9 attached photos are from the T-28 plane that crashed during today's air show at the Martinsburg Air Show. The Trojan Horseman were performing their demostration when the two planes flying solo did a flyby right in front of us. Right after the planes crossed, one of them hit the ground and burst into a huge ball of flames.
Before the plane hit the ground, it was flying very low to the ground and was flying on it's side.
The emergency crews responded imediately and it seemed that the flames were extinguished within a minute of the plane hitting the ground.
I checked the all the photos I took of the planes just prior to the crash for any signs of damage, and could not find any signs of anything unusual.
