      A pilot and wing walker were both killed on Saturday when their plane crashed at a Dayton, Ohio, air show, the Ohio State Police said, according to ABC News.

      Video from the event appeared to show a wing walker sitting on the wing of her single-engine plane as it suddenly crashed into a grassy field at the Dayton International Airport.

      Although the names of those killed have not been officially released, Jane Wicker, a wing walker, and her pilot Charlie Schwenker were the only wing walker team scheduled to perform at the Vectren Dayton Air Show, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

      The plane that crashed was licensed to Wicker, an FAA official told ABC News.

      The Vectren Dayton Air Show has been cancelled for the rest of the day, but will continue Sunday, according to the report.

      According to her website, Wicker has been wing walking since 1990, when she answered an ad because she thought "it would be an exciting way to enter the air show business."

      In addition to being a wing walker and pilot, according to her website, she is also a full-time budget analyst at the FAA, reported ABC News.

      The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA are investigating the crash.
