2 in Thunderbirds jet accident in OH in good condition

An F-16D aircraft of U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds aerobatic team overturned after landing at the Dayton International Airport runway. The pilot, Capt. Kenneth Gonsalves, and Sgt. Kenneth Cordova, a maintenance tech, suffered minor injuries.

The jet's pilot, Capt. Erik Gonsalves, has not been released from the hospital.

The accident happened just after 12:30 p.m. when the plane returned to Dayton International Airport from what the Thunderbirds described as a familiarization flight.

The incident resulted in the cancellation of the Thunderbirds' Saturday performance at the Dayton Airshow and the Sunday show is tentative. That jet wasn't scheduled to perform in the two-day show. Sgt. Kenneth Cordova did not have visible injuries, Heard said.

"Crowd safety and safety of the Thunderbird team are top priority", Heard said.

Slaybaugh briefed the media with Michael Emhoff, chairman of the United States Air and Trade Show, the entity that puts on the Vectren Dayton Air Show.

The airport director says the occupants were conscious when taken to a hospital, but any information on their condition would come from the Thunderbirds.

A fighter jet with the Air Force Thunderbirds was involved in a crash Friday at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, officials confirmed, cited by USA Today.

The opening ceremonies for the Dayton Air Show are slated for Saturday.

Air show pilots, as Thomas Gibbons-Neff wrote for The Washington Post, are typically among the best in the military.
