Pilot Killed After His Plane Crashed at Brazil Air Show

A pilot in a light plane was killed as his vehicle fell into the ocean near the Brazilian city of Salvador during an air show, local media reported.

MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) — The plane crashed and fell into the water for unknown reasons, while hundreds of spectators were watching maneuvers, the Venezuelan Globovision TV channel reported on Saturday.

When the rescuers recovered the pilot from water, he was still alive, but later died in a hospital as a result of severe injuries.

In August, several pilots died during the airshows, including those in Britain, Switzerland and the Unites States, for various reasons, from structural failure to losing control of the vehicle.

So far in 2015, over a dozen of air show accidents and incidents have been registered, the majority of them appeared fatal.
