Plane Crashes Before Rexburg Air Show
(REXBURG, ID) – The pilot of a biplane crashed at the Rexburg golf course Friday night, as he was practicing for Saturday’s Legacy Air Show. Buck Roetman of Sharpsburg, Georgia was doing barrel rolls when he failed to level out and crashed as hundreds looked on. Roetman suffered a sprained ankle, and counts himself lucky for having landed the plane upright. The aircraft was significantly damaged. Organizers say Roetman was supposed to cut a ribbon to kick off the weekend air show when he crashed.
