DAYTON, OH - Jane Wicker, wing-walker and airshow performer, was killed during a performance on Saturday. Wicker who has also performed in SW Florida started her wingwalking career after answering an ad in a newspaper back in 1990. Wicker performed at the Charlotte county airport in March where she performed the same stunt that ended tragically in Ohio. For reasons still unknown, as Wicker hung upside down from the wing of her bi-plane, the plane inverted as planned, putting her in an upright position. Then suddenly the plane nose-dived into the ground, bursting into flames. Wicker and pilot Charlie Schwenker died on impact. The investigation into the crash continues.
