    There is a flag, or something, in the way, so you don't see the initial impact.
    Probably snagged a wing tip..

    Good vid, Sunny...

    Low level aerobatics outside an airport environment - not good!

    I have found this maybe it is this crash..

    Stunt plane crash

    With his wife and three children among the thousands watching in horror, and with KDKA-TV's cameras rolling, a stunt pilot performing at the Three Rivers Regatta on Aug. 4, 1996, lost control of his biplane and plunged nose-first into the Ohio River by the Carnegie Science Center.

    The body of the pilot, Clancy Speal, 43, of New Alexandria, Westmoreland County, was recovered two days later. He had flown more than 1,200 hours at air shows.

    Cracks at the base of one of the plane’s wings were thought to have contributed to the crash.

    Hmm... a catastrophic airframe failure. Wouldn't have guessed that one. I'm a bit dubious.

    Same type of aircraft but not Speal's crash. I was there when that one happened. The wings on the plane folded up at few hundred feet of altitude and it went straight into the water like a dart.

    Same crash, two different versions. Definitely not the three rivers crash. Looked like a Pitts.
