|Bryan Jensen - Pilot of the 'Beast'. Killed on Saturday in plane crash while performing his stunts at Kansas City Air Show |
Bryan Jensen, 53, was a Minnesota native who grew up in Iowa and went on to fly commercial jetliners.
Jensen was currently based at Ponte Vedra, Fla., and was performing his stunts Saturday afternoon when his biplane got out of control and failed to pull out of a dive. The plane crashed in flames on grass next to a runway at Wheeler Downtown Airport.
The exact cause of the plane crash is not yet established while the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are probing into the cause of plane crash. Sunday's show was dedicated to Jensen and went off without any problems.
