Aurora/Oswego is very near my home town...when I lived in Aurora with my grandparents as a kid it wasn't uncommon to see the odd warbird overhead, on it's way to somewhere.

What a shame. At least the people all survived.

And I saw today that one of the Goodyear blimps has crashed killing its pilot. The article indicated that he got his passengers out (none hurt) and then the blimp lifted, deprived of its ballast. He was found at the controls, having steered the falling craft away from his ground crew and others in the area.
