Witnesses told the the Telegraph the aircraft "nosedived" into the ground and there was no hope for her survival. Cruse,40, of Santa Paula, Calif., was president of the International Aerobatic Club which said in its tribute to Cruse that team manager Norm DeWitt "said Cruse was flying the early-round "Q" program when she lost control of her Zivko Edge 540 aircraft by what appeared to be a mechanical problem in flight. She was at an altitude that prevented her from bailing out of the aircraft."

Snowbirds Airshow from Technorati
Sunday August 23rd, 2009 @ 11:12 am by Angelika Goto commentsLeave a comment I will admit to getting a little bit lazy blogging-wise.

And that comes from a person who...

Snowbirds in the backyard by newfoundsander
No, it’s not snowing yet. In fact it’s too hot to do much of anything today, this didn’t stop us from walking the Blackhead trail at Signal Hill. A big cruiseship was supposed to come in today but due to bad weather (elsewhere) it was cancelled. Too bad, so we went home again. Just before leaving to get some groceries, we heard airplanes shear closely overhead, looking up we saw it was the Snowbirds! As I understand, these are the pride and joy of the Canadian Air Force, they are putting up a show today not far from where we live and we enjoyed the entire thing from our backyard...

AirVenture 2009 Photos from Technorati
Candy and I took a day out of our Door County escape to visit Oshkosh for the AirVenture 2009 airshow. Landing on “runway” 36R was fun. Landing at Oshkosh on 36R. It's a runway, not a taxiway. Really. With only a day to spent, we saw the airshow and pretty much whatever we happened to wander by, such as the business end of this Thrush ag sprayer.
