According to news sources, the pilot involved in the deadly Reno air show crash Friday might have lost consciousness in flight while racing his plane.
Although Federal investigators are currently still in the process of determining the exact cause of the accident, flying experts seem to suggest that the reason the veteran pilot reportedly lost control of his plane is that he lost consciousness while in the air.
Flying at extreme speeds and experiencing abrupt and extreme acceleration, the pilot most likely was not able to endure what even most fighter pilots cannot experience without losing consciousness, flying experts said.
The pilot shot skyward before diving into spectator ground at seemingly full speed. The accident claimed 11 lives and has injured dozens of people in the crowd watching the show.
