Mike Draper said he's been told there are "likely fatalities" but it has not been determined who they may be, nor whether the pilot of the "Galloping Ghost" aircraft that went down survived.
[Updated 8:39 p.m. ET] There are "mass casualties" at an air show after a plane crashed Friday into an area in front of a grandstand at the National Championship Air Races and Air Show in Reno, Nevada, a spokesman for the air show told CNN.
In video posted on YouTube, emergency responders could be seen assisting spectators at the show, though it was not immediately clear how many were injured. CNN could not immediately confirm the authenticity of the video.
Witnesses told CNN affiliate KTVN that the plane was about 400-500 feet in the air when it nosedived and crashed. Another witness told KTVN that it appeared the pilot was trying to pull the plane away from the grandstand before it crashed.FULL STORY
