A STUNT PLANE PILOT IS DEAD, KILLED WHILE DOING ACROBATIC MANEUVERS AT A CALIFORNIA AIR SHOW THIS WEEKEND.

IT HAPPENED SUNDAY AS HUNDREDS AT THE TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE AIR SHOW LOOKED ON.

NANNETTE MIRANDA HAS THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


CALIFORNIA AIR SHOW CRASH-PKG


"Obviously we're astonished. Like, how does this happen?"

Amateur video captures the smoky aftermath of the fatal plane crash of a vintage bi-plane, an abrupt end to the popular Travis "Air Force Base Thunder Over Solano Air Expo" … a two-day event that hasn't been held for three years.

"It's a really tragic way to end the show. He was doing great up until that point, and I know he's been doing it for years. It's a big shock."

THE PILOT KILLED WAS 77-YEAR-OLD EDDIE ANDREINI OF HALF MOON BAY … ACCORDING TO HIS WEBSITE, HE'S BEEN FLYING SINCE HE WAS 16 AND AN AIR SHOW STUNT PILOT OF 25 YEARS. HE WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF WHAT'S CALLED "CUTTING THE RIBBON", SOMETHING HE'S DONE MANY TIMES BEFORE … WHEN SOMETHING WENT WRONG THIS TIME.

"I saw the performer perform an inverted and he was flying approximately 40-50 feet from the runway, and then his plane kind of stair-stepped then impacted the runway in an inverted formation, upside down."

"Several minutes had passed. Before the flames happened and then started in the rear section forward. And that was that."

NO SPECTATORS WERE KILLED OR INJURED. THE AIR SHOW WAS IMMEDIATELY SHUT DOWN, FORCING THOUSANDS TO LEAVE EARLY. THE BASE HAS PREPARED THE FIELD FOR NTSB INVESTIGATORS WHO WILL BE DETERMINING THE CAUSE OF THE CRASH. MANY WONDER HOW MUCH OF A ROLE THE GUSTY WINDS PLAYED.

"If we look at yesterday, winds were much greater, stronger. Gusts coming down the runway. What I can tell you is winds were approximately 10-15 knots." Return to index of stories...

I think that everyone is anticipating there will probably be a legal fight. However, I'd like him to rethink that position. I think if Mr. Sterling was going to approach it the right way, he would apologize. He would embrace the sanctions and spend the rest of his life proving he was not a racist.

3 GALLONS FULL OF LABOR AND HARD WORK.

ADD WATER AND YOU'VE GOT A BRIGHT IDEA.

"We threw one away at work. They were just like this thing is broken, go throw it in the trash can."

AS YOU MIGHT GUESS. HE DIDN'T THROW IT AWAY.

"I've always been the kind of guy that likes to take things apart and see how they work."

MEET JAKE HARMS.

"Everyone's like oh, you're the computer aquarium guy and I'm like yeah there's surely no title for it."

BACK IN 2007, JAKE TOOK THAT COMPUTER HOME.

HE CAST A LINE AND MADE A SPLASH.

"I had an iMac and I saw someone that made an aquarium and I was like oh I'll make that."

SO HE DOVE IN HEAD FIRST.

SINCE THEN, THE ORDERS HAVE BEEN SWIMMING IN.

"After a while one of my buddies was like hey, can you make me one of those so I made him one and everybody's like hey, can you make me one of those so I made him one."

EVENTUALLY HE WANTED TO EXPAND HIS BUBBLING BUSINESS.

AND SO, CUSTOM CREATIONS EMERGED.

"I built 50 in a year, sold 50 in a year and it's kind of snowballed since then."

IN 7 YEARS, HE'S SOLD OVER 1 THOUSAND AQUARIUMS.

"It may look easy, but Jake gets these broken computers, takes them apart, polishes them down and ships these aquariums all over the world."

"Sometimes I can't even read the address because they go all over the world."

DESPITE THE GLOBAL SALES, JAKE STILL OPERATES OUT OF HIS BASEMENT IN HILDRETH.

"If it got bigger than that it would be too much and I don't think it'd be as fun anymore."

HE SPENDS HOURS WORKING TO BUILD THE NEW MARINE HOME.

AND IT'S NOT JUST AQUARIUMS THAT HE MAKES.

HE TURNS TRASH INTO TREASURE. Return to index of stories...

IT'S NOT WHAT CHILDREN AND THEIR PARENTS EXPECTED TO SEE.

SOME THOUGHT IT WAS PART OF THE ACT WHEN EIGHT WOMEN - HANGING ONLY BY THEIR HAIR - CAME CRASHING DOWN ON A NINTH PERSON AT THE RINGLING BROTHERS AND BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS IN RHODE ISLAND SUNDAY.

"We thought it was part of the show. And then all of a sudden - you seen the cable break."

"It was scary. It was. It was really scary."

ALL NINE SUFFERED SERIOUS INJURIES - MOSTLY BROKEN BONES. NONE ARE BELIEVED TO BE LIFE-THREATENING. SOME REQUIRED SURGERY.

THIS MORNING WE'VE LEARNED THE CIRCUS IS CONSIDERING FLYING THEIR FAMILIES IN FROM UKRAINE, BRAZIL AND BULGARIA.

IT WAS A 25 TO 40 FOOT DROP.

"All of the material that goes into one of these performances - all the rigging - are materials we bring with us to every single show. every single city we go to. and it's inspected every single time it's put up. to my knowledge, we've had no reports of any problems with this rigging in the past."

STILL UNKNOWN: WHY THAT PLATFORM COLLAPSED.

"Within the next 24 hours, I believe that with the help of OSHA, the state and local officials will have a good idea of what failed."

OSHA - THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION - IS HELPING PROVIDENCE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMISSIONERS INVESTIGATE.

"Within the next 24 hours, I believe that with the help of OSHA, the state and local officials will have a good idea of what failed."

BABY GATE DANGERS-BUBBA


MORE THAN THIRTY THOUSAND CHILDREN HAVE LANDED IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM AFTER EXPERIENCING A BABY GATE-RELATED INJURY.

MARK BARGER REPORTS ON HOW MOST OF THOSE INJURIES-

COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. Return to index of stories...


BABY GATE DANGERS-TRX-PKG


THEY WERE SOUNDS NO PARENT WANTS TO HEAR.

"I heard lots of thumps, little baby thumps, and I knew immediately. I just knew what was going on."

JESSICA FANNON'S 9 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER, ELLA, HAD TUMBLED.DOWN 14 STAIRS OF HER HOME.

THE BABY GATE FANNON THOUGHT WOULD PROTECT ELLA HAD COME LOOSE.BECAUSE IT WASN'T MADE FOR THE TOP OF A STAIR CASE.

"I didn't know there was specific upstairs or downstairs gates. And there are."

A STUDY BY NATIONWIDE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOUND THAT, BETWEEN 1990 AND 2010, THE

NUMBER OF BABY GATE RELATED INJURIES NEARLY QUADRUPLED.TO AN AVERAGE OF 1800 A YEAR.

"We can do a better job to make this product easier to use, easier for parents to install, and where kids won't be injured when they come in contact with this product."

EVEN THOUGH STANDARDS FOR BABY GATES ARE ONLY VOLUNTARY----NOT FEDERALLY MANDATED---THE STUDY'S

RESEARCHERS STILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND USING THEM. BUT HAVING THE RIGHT TYPE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IS KEY.

"Pressure mounted gates are great at the bottom of the stairs or between rooms, but you don't want to use a pressure mounted gate at the top of the stairs because they're too easily pushed through."

nats "Let's go upstairs and play"

IN ELLA'S CASE, A GATE PROPERLY SUITED FOR THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS PROTECTED THIS DAUGHTER OF A PEDIATRIC NURSE FROM SERIOUS INJURY.

"They assessed her, did scans, she was totally fine. But I was very lucky."

USING THE PROPER BABY GATE CAN MINIMIZE THE NEED FOR LUCK.
