Dayton Daily News, Ty Greenlees, Associated Press
CINCINNATI — The plane that crashed at an Ohio air show, killing the pilot and stunt walker, is registered to a veteran wing walker.
Federal records show that the Boeing Stearman biplane that crashed Saturday at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton was registered to Jane Wicker of Loudon, Va.
The Federal Aviation Administration says Wicker was also a contract employee who worked as an FAA budget analyst.
An FAA official says the kind of aircraft that crashed was heavily used for pilot training during World War II.
The plane turned upside-down as Wicker sat on top of the wing before it titled and crashed into the ground, bursting into flames.
The air show canceled the rest of Saturday's events after the crash but planned to resume Sunday.
