The second crash in three days has forced the suspension of the Reno National Championship Air Races.
On Tuesday a biplane stalled shortly after takeoff and crashed, killing the pilot Steve Dari from Lemon Grove during a practice run at the Reno National Championship Air Races.
Brad Morehouse was “killed instantly” when his jet crashed on Thursday.
He was flying an L-39 Albatross he named ‘Dino Juice’, a jet often used for military flight training.
His death marked the 17th fatality in the 44-year history of the races.
