Tribute Paid to Air Show Crash Victims
On Sunday, spectators and racers remembered the 11 people who were killed at an air show last year, in Reno, NV.
One of the victims was Ocala pilot Jimmy Leeward.
A moment of silence was observed at the Reno-Stead Airport on the anniversary of the accident.
White balloons were released and a flag was presented after each victim's name was read.
Leeward's World War 2 era P51 Mustang Fighter reached 530 MPH before pitching skyward and slamming nose first into the box seats.
The pilot and 10 others on the ground were killed, while 70 others were injured.
Federal investigators say that modifications Leeward made to the aircraft were the cause of the accident.
