A pilot has died after crashing his plane at the Reno National Championship Air Races at Reno-Stead Airport Monday afternoon. Reno Public Radio’s Michelle Bliss reports that the tragedy is a painful reminder of the event’s 2011 crash that killed 11 people, most of them spectators in the grandstand.

Lee Behel was a racing veteran from San Jose who flew planes in both the Air Force and the Nevada National Guard. He was also the father of two sons.
