Stunt plane crashes ahead of New York air show, killing pilot

Plane Crash Alert

Police say a stunt plane has crashed while practicing tricks for a weekend air show in New York, killing the pilot.
Trooper Steven Nevel says the propeller-driven plane crashed at around 2 p.m. Friday at Stewart International Airport in the Orange County town of New Windsor. The New York Air Show is scheduled to take place there this weekend.
The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane was an experimental aircraft owned by stunt pilot Andrew Wright, of Austin, Texas. Wright took a local reporter for a preview flight earlier Friday.
The pilot was the only person aboard the plane.
A woman at the air show box office said the show will go on as scheduled.
