MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) ' A West Virginia Air National Guard spokesman says a World War II-era plane has crashed at an air show.
Lt. Nathan Mueller says the T-28 aircraft crashed during a routine Saturday at a Martinsburg airfield. Mueller did not have any details on the pilot's condition.
The plane was performing during the Thunder Over the Blue Ridge air show.
The crash comes a day after a stunt pilot lost control of his World War II-era plane at a Nevada air show, crashing near a VIP section in a wreck that killed three and sent dozens to the hospital.
