Two P-51s Lost at Air Show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin

One of the two P-51s impacts the runway during the airshow.

Two vintage P-51 Mustangs crashed at an air show this weekend, part of a two-plane collision that killed one of the pilots.

The accident happened while the two planes were landing during the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture show, Friday, July 27, 2007, in Oshkosh, Wis.

The FAA said the accident with the two P-51 Mustangs happened after the planes finished a performance at the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture show.

The collision left one pilot confirmed dead, the FAA said. The annual convention is considered one of the world's largest gatherings of recreational aviators. (AP Photo/Mike Paschal)
My prayers go out to the men involved in this terrible accident, and their families.

My sister and brother-in-law were at Oshkosh last week, but I'm not sure whether they witnessed the crash. They were due home at the weekend.

It's a tragdy to lose a pilot in this way and two aircraft as well.
