There was no thought that anyone else was in the plane, DeKalb Public Safety Director Cedric Alexander said.
Officials said they have no idea at this point what caused the crash. Evans said there was some wind, but said, “That’s a normal day for us.”
“It is very, very tragic,” Alexander said. “There was a large crowd that was still here watching the air show when this occurred, so we know this is going to be very traumatic to a lot of people who witnessed this unfortunate event.”
“There were a lot of fire and police and civilian personnel who were here as well, and any time something like this happens, it is so tragic, and our hearts and prayers go out to the family of this pilot.”
The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are involved in the ongoing investigation.
