A Word War II-era plane crashed Friday afternoon during an air race in Reno, Nevada leaving ten people dead. Seven of those killed died at the scene and three others died later on at hospitals.
Local and federal authorities from the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash. Officials have stated that although it is too soon to determine what caused the crash, some suspect it may have been due to mechanical problems.
Generally, the owner or operator of an airfield is responsible for maintenance and safety. Failure to properly execute that responsibility can lead to the owner’s liability.
