Hillsboro Plane Crash

This year's Oregon International Airshow was cut short by a plane crash into a residential area. (National and local coverage.) I didn't attend the airshow this year, so I didn't see it, but I feel obligated to write about it since I'm probably the blogger living nearest to the event.

The crash was approximately one mile east of the airport, and just south of the Intel Ronler Acres campus. Here's a map.

The pilot was killed in the crash but there were no injuries on the ground. No one was home at the house that was directly hit.

There was also a crash at this airport last May but that one wasn't related to the airshow.

(Mom, I'm fine. And I'm still not worried about getting hit by a plane.)
