Ukrainian Plane Kills 70 Spectators

Ukrainian Plane Kills 70 Spectators

A fighter jet slammed onto the runway and sliced through a huge crowd watching an air show Saturday, killing at least 70 spectators and injuring 111 in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, emergency officials said.

The two pilots ejected and survived, the Defense Ministry said, just before the Su-27 crashed and erupted into a massive ball of flame that engulfed onlookers at Skniliv Airport.

The plane was in the sky for about two minutes, but then it appeared to go silent and headed toward the ground and banked left its wingtip clipping trees and touching another plane on the ground before it crashed.
