Plane crashes at air show in eastern Iowa

Posted: Updated:

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A plane that was part of an air show in eastern Iowa has crashed, and the pilot is feared dead.

A Soviet-era training jet flying in formation crashed and burst into flames at the Quad-City Air Show about 1:25 p.m. on Saturday.

The newspaper says the pilot of the crashed plane is feared dead. Rubble from the crash fell into a field at the Eastern Iowa Industrial Center in northern Davenport next to Interstate 80.

Officials at the scene asked spectators to not go to their cars, because the area near the air show at the Davenport Municipal Airport in Mt. Joy was being cordoned off to let emergency vehicles in and out.
