Horror as jet plane crashes in Las Vegas

08 April 2018

Maj. Stephen Del Bagno, Thunderbird 4/Slot Pilot, prepares to march to his F-16 Fighting Falcon during a modified ground show practice at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Jan. 26, 2018. He has logged more than 3,500 flight hours, with 1,400 of those as an Air Force pilot.

An investigation has been opened into the cause of the accident, which was the third US military aircraft crash this week.

In light of the accident, the Thunderbirds' appearance Saturday and Sunday at the March Air Reserve Base's "March Field Air & Space Expo" in California was canceled.

Magnitude 5.3 Earthquake Strikes Off Southern California Coast
The temblor hit beneath the Pacific Ocean about 12:29 p.m., at a depth of about 10 miles beneath the surface, USGS reported. Veteran seismologist Lucy Jones says earthquakes of such size typically occur about once per year at Southern California.

Before the start of an airshow in Dayton, Ohio, Thunderbird 08 - piloted by Capt. Erik "Speedy" Gonsalves - flipped on a wet runway following a "familiarization flight" on June 23 for a fellow Thunderbirds maintenance crew member.

The pilot was injured in the incident. The team had 35 show sites scheduled for 2018.

The U.S. military forces are involved in several intensive campaigns across the world, where combat aircraft are used rather intensely.

Maya Goodwin led the way on both sides of the ball for LEAP Academy in its 16-0 win in five innings over Lindenwold in Lindenwold. Anna scored five runs in the fifth to take a 6-3 lead, and Russian Federation responded with two in the bottom of the inning.

Since Heard's release last November, two-year team veteran Lt. Col. Kevin Walsh has led the Thunderbirds. The Air Force did not identify the type of aircraft Schultz was flying, but he was assigned to the Air Force Materiel Command which is responsible for testing new aircraft and aircraft systems. He was serving at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida as the 58th Fighter Squadron's chief of standardization and evaluation for the F-35 program when he was selected to join the Thunderbirds.

"The condition of the pilot is not known at this time", it said. The Air Force is a very tight-knit community.

The crash followed two others the day before. The incident happened at 2:35 p.m., and the aircraft belonged to the 3rd Air Wing of the U.S. Marine Corps.
