The pilot was a Delta 767ER International captain named Chris Smission.

That's about all I know.

Unfortunately yeah. Our sunday paper had infomation on it. It said the plane was an SP-95 and that he did a loop to transition into a low pass, but he didn't pull out in time and went propeller first into the ground.

My condolences to the family of Mr. Smisson.

That's horrible...

It goes to show that even highly experienced pilots can and do make mistakes.

I also send my condolences to the family...
