Aerobatic Accident Claims Life of Prominent Broadcaster and Airshow Pilot

'Drug Fighter' Franklin Augustus Killed, Along with TV Personality, Nancy Parker

Franklin Augustus, one of the few African American Airshow pilots in the world, as well as being heavily involved in the local chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen, went down in his 1983 Pitts S-2B about a half mile from New Orleans Lakefront Airport at approximately 1500 local time.

The accident did not appear remotely survivable, and the aircraft caught fire as a result of the impact pretty much consuming the aircraft.
