The pilot of a post-World War II plane died on Saturday after crashing into a runway and bursting into flames in Martinsburg, West Virginia, the second deadly air show crash in 24 hours. The West Virginia Air National Guard said that no spectators were injured and that the crash site was far away from anyone at the show. The fixed-wing, single-engine T-28 plane is registered to John Mangan of Concord, North Carolina, and was built in 1958, according to a Federal Aviation Administration registry. The crash occurred a day after a stunt pilot crashed at a Nevada air show on Friday, killing himself and eight others.
