      Plane crashes at Louisa County airshow, no injuries

      Lake Louisa, Virginia.

      LOUISA, Va. (AP) - State and federal authorities are investigating a plane crash that occurred during an airshow at the Louisa County Airport.

      Virginia State Police say the pilot, 53-year-old Bryon Stewart of Warrenton, and a 17-year-old female passenger from Brandy Station weren't injured.

      The crash occurred Saturday as the 1929 Fleet fixed wing single-engine plane was attempting to land.

      Molnar says the brakes malfunctioned and the plane ran off the runway, hit and embankment and overturned.

      State police and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating.
