COPY-Plane crashes at Stevens Point Airshow

Posted: Updated:

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) - A plane has crashed at the Stevens Point Airshow, and officials have closed the airport and dismissed the crowds.

The crash happened Sunday afternoon at the Stevens Point Municipal Airport. There was no immediate word on the extent of any casualties.

A WAOW report says the plane was performing an aerial trick when it went down behind a row of trees.

The investigation will be led by the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board.

A Stevens Point Journal Media report says the events scheduled for the airshow included aerobatic performances and World War II aircraft displays.
