Stunt pilot Eddie Andreini, who was recently inducted to the International Council of Air Shows Hall of Fame, died while doing a stunt at the ‘Thunder Over Solano’ air show. Andreini, 77 years old, was performing ‘a low-level inverted pass to cut a ribbon’, a staple of his routine, when his plane crashed.

He was flying a restored 1944 Super Stearman biplane, one he used many times during air shows on the West Coast.  The show was attended by 85,000 people but after the 2pm Sunday crash the show was closed.

The plane was specially designed to perform the kind of maneuvers that are required in an air show and the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
