Jane Wicker dies in fiery blaze as she walks on the bottom of the left wing of an inverted plane in Dayton, Ohio, during the Ohio Air Show, Saturday, June 22, 2013.

The incidents where crimes have been caught on tape instead of being thwarted by those taping the incident are the worst.  But, no one expected to see a deadly plane stunt result in a grizzly firestorm…on camera.

The Ohio Air Show took place in Dayton, Ohio, Saturday, as onlookers witnessed the horrific instant deaths of both a pilot and stunt walker Jane Wicker were photographed by 20-year-old Ian Hoyt.  Hoyt was watching the show with his girlfriend when the devastating crash occurred before their eyes.  Hoyt’s an aviation photographer and licensed pilot who was taking photos as the plane passed by and had just raised his camera to take another shot.

“Then I realized they were too low and too slow. And before I knew it, they hit the ground,” he said.

“I’m still shaking,” Hoyt said. He said he had been excited to see the show because he’d never seen the scheduled performer — wing walker Jane Wicker — in action.

The video was submitted to WHIO-TV, and posted on YouTube.  Surely every family that was present for the show, was devastated and still shaken.  Wicker has a site where her words are eerily stating how she feels about her stunts.

“What you see us do out there is after an enormous amount of practice and fine tuning, not to mention the airplane goes through microscopic care. It is a managed risk and that is what keeps us alive,” she wrote.
