Posted June 24, 2017

CBS affiliate WHIO-TV reports an F-16 Thunderbird crashed and overturned shortly before 1 the end of a runway at Dayton International Airport.

Firefighters from the Wright Patterson Air Force Base and the airport's fire and rescue team responded to the crash.

The airport isn't just dealing with an emergency service situation, it also has inclement weather bogging down transportation.

A U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds fighter jet flipped onto its top as it landed during a practice for an air show in Ohio.

The F-16 appeared to be practicing in thunderstorm conditions ahead of this weekend's 2017 Vectren Dayton Air Show.

The Dayton Air Show is no stranger to tragedy: In 2013, a pilot and stunt walker were killed when their bi-plane crashed onto the runway and burst into flames as spectators looked on.

No injuries or report of any fuel leaks were immediately reported. They use the F-16D Fighting Falcon to perform aerial acrobatics and formation flying at air shows across the world.

The pilot, his passenger and a tactical aircraft maintainer were all taken to a hospital for treatment.
