I've just been on the phone with my parents, supposedly there has been another air show crash this weekend in Martinsburg, WV. A T-28 has collided with another plane.

WV news now reporting that the pilot died in the crash. No spectators were injured. RIP to the pilot and sympathies to his family and friends.

Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?

Rough weekend for warbirds between this and Jimmy Leward's Mustang at Reno. RIP to both pilots and those on the ground at Reno.

Saw a yellow colored biplane almost flip over landing on 13 at LGA this morning. The bottom right side wing came within inches of scraping the runway, at pretty low speed, I might add. He was coming in for the show I guess they're having. A KC-10 from McGuire AFB, a C-47, a Civil Air Patrol 172, and this biplane all landed on 13 within 20 mins. With runway 4 closed, things were moving very slowly.

RIP to those lost in at Reno and in WV.

That maneuver had nothing to do with the accident. He was flying too low for his barrel roll.

If he had collided with another plane, then I could see your point.
