Crash at New York Air Show leaves stunt plane’s pilot dead.

NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. A pilot was killed after his propeller-driven stunt plane crashed while he was practicing tricks for a weekend air show in New York’s Hudson Valley, state police said Friday.

Friday at Stewart International Airport in the Orange County town of New Windsor, where the New York Air Show is scheduled to take place this weekend. FAA records list the Giles G202 experimental aircraft as belonging to Andrew Wright of Austin, Texas, though the identity of the pilot killed has not been released. Benjamin Granucci, who tweeted out the photo of Wright’s striped plane in a clear blue sky, describing hearing a “thud” during the crash but said there wasn’t any smoke or flames. “What I saw was the aircraft come in for a dive.

As it pulled up, it suddenly crossed the crowd line and spun towards the ground,” Granucci, who lists himself as an editor for NYC Aviation, tweeted. Columbia University asked a judge Friday to reject a student’s lawsuit alleging the school failed to protect him after a onetime friend called him a “serial rapist” and carried a mattress around campus to protest sexual abuse. His lawsuit alleged that the university’s actions caused him to face gender discrimination and defamation during the last school year and damaged his job prospects. The German citizen sued the university this year, saying it effectively sponsored attacks against him by letting Emma Sulkowicz obtain class credit with a mattress-toting project that was designed to draw attention to her claims against him leading up to commencement.

Sulkowicz, preventing her from speaking publicly on the issue of sexual assault on college campuses—an issue of national concern.” A Fire Department of New York lieutenant who was shot while responding to a Staten Island fire is thanking his colleagues, family and the people of New York City. An elementary school teacher who was allowed to keep his job despite being late for work 111 times in two years said Friday that breakfast is to blame for his tardiness.
