One Of The Most Tragic Weekends In Recent Airshow History?
There is nothing common in any of the horrific events that
transpired this weekend, but three amazing aerial performers,
dedicated to entertaining people all over the world with the
excitment and thrills inherent in aviation, lost their lives
in airshow demonstrations in three unique airshows and airshow
acts. The most recent accident happened just a few hours ago as
wing walker Todd Green (pictured above in a Franklin Airshows pic)
was engaged in a plane to helicopter transfer and fell from a
height estimated at 200 feet. The 1330 (Local time) accident
occurred at the Selfridge Air National Guard Base during a weekend
airshow at a location some 20 miles NE of Detroit.
