Authorities say a plane carrying a wing walker has crashed at an Ohio air show, killing the pilot and stunt walker.

Dayton International Airport spokeswoman Linda Hughes and Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Anne Ralston confirmed the deaths to The Associated Press on Saturday.

The crash happened early Saturday afternoon at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton. No spectators were injured.

The show has been canceled for the remainder of the day. The names of those killed weren't released immediately.

A schedule posted on the event's website had Jane Wicker scheduled to perform.

A video posted on WHIO-TV shows the plane turn upside-down as Wicker sits on top of the wing. The plane then tilts and crashes to the ground, exploding into flames as spectators scream.
