Another Tough Weekend For Airshows... Two Pilots Lost

Accidents in Oregon and China Take Pilot's Lives

It's been a lousy weekend to be an aviation journalist as we document the tragic loss of two well-known pilots in two separate airshows accident.. each on the other side of the world. At the 1st Silk Road International General Aviation Convention held at Danxia airport in China, well-known Red Bull pilot Michel Leusch (shown here) was lost when a performance resulted in a series of rolling descending maneuvers that inexplicablu terminated in a ground impact some 300-400 feet from the edge of the runway. Leusch made a name for himself in both model as well as full scale aviation. On the other side of the world, a 1941 450 Stearman flown by NW Aerobat Marcus Paine apparently failed to execute a loop, which terminated in contact with the ground shortly before 1500 local time, in Madras, OR. The aircraft caught fire shortly after impact but Paine was extricated quickly by first-responders... but none-the-less succumbed to his injuries.
