Reno Air Races
The Reno Air Races are expected to continue despite the deadly crash in 2011 that killed 11 people.
Federal crash investigators said Friday they found no readable onboard video amid the debris of a modified racing plane that crashed into a crowd of spectators last month at an air race in Reno, killing 11 and injuring at least 74.
Although the investigation into the shocking crash Friday at the Reno Air Races will take months to complete, a Sacramento professor explained what he thinks caused the World War II-era plane to nosedive straight into the ground.
A Reno hospital spokeswoman says a 10th person has died as a result of Friday’s air show crash.
The airplane slammed into the ground near a crowd of seated audience members on a runway of the Reno-Stead Airport at about 4:20 p.m., disintegrating instantly in the violent crash. Numerous victims were thrown into the air as bystanders screamed and ducked away from flying debris.
