    Another Airshow Accident

    This was just posted on the Selfridge Airshow's Facebook Page...

    Today at approximately 1:30 p.m. at the Selfridge Air Show, wing walker Todd Green who was flying on John Mohr's Steerman aircraft, when he fell off the plane as he attempted to transfer from his aircraft to a helicopter. He fell about 200 feet to the ground.

    Green has been taken by MedStar ambulance to Mt. Clemens General Hospital. More information will be released as it becomes available.
    No word on his status as of yet but we all know the damage a 200ft fall can do. Fearing the worst, hoping for the best.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    I saw the video of the incident, which I didn't think should be posted. Very sad to see another wingwalking death this year. :(
