CTV.ca: Two U.S. pilots killed in Sask. air show crash
Two planes from the U.S.-based Masters of Disaster aerobatics team collided at an air show in Moose Jaw, Sask., killing both pilots in a fiery crash to the earth.
About 20,000 spectators watched the disaster from the ground on the final day of the annual show.
The Masters of Disaster is a civilian team of stunt pilots which formed two years ago. The team's press kit calls it "the wildest, craziest, and most controversial act to hit the air shows industry in years."
The team specializes in multi-plane dogfights and aggressive aerial acrobatics.
Fire crews were called to the scene Sunday afternoon, and the rest of the air show was immediately cancelled.
The Transport Safety Board will start its investigation Monday into what caused the accident.

btw...are those bi-planes?
The pilots were flying small jet bi-planes, replicating a First World War airfight, when their wings clipped. The planes were nicknamed "Samson," and "Waco."
The team's third plane, "Bulldog," was able to make a safe landing.
