Plane Crash At Airshow Leaves Pilot, Stuntwoman Dead

CINCINNATI (June 23, 2013)--Spectators returned to an airshow Sunday in southwestern Ohio a day after a pilot and wing walker were killed in a horrifying crash.

The Gates at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton opened Sunday morning.

The day's events were set to begin with a moment of silence to honor pilot Charlie Schwenker and wing walker Jane Wicker who were killed Saturday when the plane crashed suddenly in front of spectators who screamed in shock as the aircraft quickly was engulfed in flames.

No one else was hurt.

The show was canceled for the rest of the day.

The cause of the crash is unclear.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
