Plane crash kills 2, injures 75 at US air show

­A vintage airplane crashed into the box seat area at an air show at Reno-Stead Airport in the southwestern US, injuring at least 75 people. Two people were killed in the crash, including the pilot, Jimmy Leeward, say medical officials. Some 25 people in critical condition were sent to hospital. “There are people lying all over the runway,” said eyewitnesseses. “One guy was cut in half. There’s blood everywhere.” A P-51 Mustang plane seemed to have lost control, pulling straight up and then coming down into people in the stands. No explosion followed the plane hitting the ground. The National Championship Air Races attract thousands of people to the state of Nevada every September to watch various military and civilian planes race.
