(Updated Sep 18, 2011 @ 21:49) One of the T-28 Trojan of the Trojan Horsemen, or T-28 Warbird Aerobatic Formation Demonstration Team, went out of control and crashed on the runway at the Thunder over the Blueridge airshow in Martinsburg, West Virginia. The pilot was killed in the crash. No spectators were harmed.
It has now been confirmed that the pilot was John “Jack” Mangan, an ex-USAF pilot and businessman who had been flying with the Horsemen for five years. A preliminary NTSB report should be available within a few days.
