Gee, that's awful.  :'( My thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims of the crash and their families. I heard a little earlier that it was 5 dead, 12 is even worse.

Sadly, the death toll is only going to get higher.  How sad.  Add another casualty to the list for the bird as well.  A P51 is a treasure.

Bloody hell. That's bad. I thought that flying over crowds was banned for this very reason? RIP.
