(Newser) – A wing walker and pilot were killed today in a fiery plane crash at an air show near Dayton, Ohio, the AP reports. They were identified as stunt woman Jane Wicker and pilot Charlie Schwenker, according to the Dayton Daily News. "My understanding is there was nothing [emergency responders] could do for the victims of the crash," says a police official, as per WHIO TV. The Vectren Air Show was canceled for the rest of the day, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
