Two people were killed at an Ohio air show Saturday after a plane carrying a wing walker crashed and burst into flames, the Associated Press reported.

The stunt plane fell from the sky at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton, Ohio. A schedule posted on the event’s website said Jane Wicker Wingwalker was scheduled to perform.

No one on the ground was hurt, the A.P. said.

A video of the crash shows a propeller-powered biplane circling in the sky and, as it descends toward the crowd, the pilot appears to lose control. The plane spins, hits the ground and immediately bursts into a ball of orange fire.

A spokeswoman for the air show did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
