Media outlets are reporting that a stunt plane carrying a wing walker has crashed at an air show in western Ohio.

Officials confirmed at about 2:15 p.m. that two people died in the crash.

The crash happened Saturday afternoon at the Vectren Air Show near Dayton. A schedule posted on the event's website had Jane Wicker Wingwalker scheduled to perform.

A fire dispatcher confirmed a crash Saturday to The Associated Press but had no other information.
The Dayton Daily News and several TV stations say the plane burst into flames when it hit the ground. A fire truck extinguished the blaze.

The show is scheduled to continue on Sunday.

The FAA is investigating the crash, and officials were on site at the time of the crash.

A spokeswoman for the Vectren Air Show near Dayton didn't immediately return a telephone message.
