Possible "mass-casualty situation" at Reno airshow

[video=youtube;rCNePeKn3Tg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCNePeKn3Tg[/video]

An airplane has crashed near the grandstand at the National Championship Air Races near Reno, Nev.

A Reno air race spokesman described the crash as a "mass-casualty situation." KRNV-TV aired videotape of the scene that showed at least four people being carried on stretchers to ambulances.

It wasn't clear what kind of airplane was involved.

The National Championship Air Races draws thousands of people every year in September to watch various military and civilian planes race.

A video posted on YouTube by user slicker0492 appears to show the crash.

It was a replica WWII P51 flown by an 80 year old. No, I'm not joking.

Why the fuck don't they have these far enough away from people? Every video I seem of a mishap from one of these the people are like 40 feet away.

It's an air race, not an air show. They were supposed to just be flying by, not doing anything crazy.

I'm betting it was a hijacker with a box cutter.

Jesus Christ could you imagine if Kirk was still here. All you would hear is how the government took down the plane and the crowd was actually holograms and it was all an elaborate plot to justify going to war with Red Bull and it subsidiaries.

No, sounds lie the organizers need to move the people back 70-to 100 yards.
you do understand when u attend events such as this its implied you may put your life at risk. so i guess you want mlb to move fans 400 feet from the base lines? and in hockey golf also?

you attend a nascar race sit up front its a gimmie that something may happen.
