    Just horrible. My thoughts go out to the families and friends of those injured. "..multiple fatalities" quoted in the paper you linked above.

    Looks like the P51 Galloping Ghost crashed near the stands into some spectators not very long ago. Early reports are saying 12 dead and many injured.
