Air race crash caught on tape (09-14-07)

Another pilot has died in a crash at the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada.

Brad Morehouse of Afton, Wyoming was killed Thursday when his L-39 Albatross jet crashed during competition.

Morehouse is the second pilot to die at the race in the last three days.

The cause of Thursday's fiery crash is under investigation however race officials say it appears Morehouse may have gotten caught in the wake of a jet he was tailing.

Competition was suspended after the accident but will resume Friday.

On Tuesday, California pilot Steve Dari was killed when his biplane stalled shortly after takeoff.

17 people have been killed in the 44-year-history of the race.

The last deadly accident was in 2002.
