Investigators probe crash at California air show

FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) - Investigators trying to determine what caused the crash of a vintage airplane during a stunt at a California air show say they will start by examining the wreckage and ground scars.

Howard Plagens of the National Transportation Safety Board said Monday that his team will also look at the time it took emergency crews to respond.

Witnesses have said it seemed like a long time before fire crews arrived at the scene of Sunday's crash at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield.

The crash killed 77-year-old pilot Edward Andreini of Half Moon Bay. No spectators were hurt.

Base spokesman Jim Spellman disputed witness accounts, saying crews were dispatched promptly and responded within a minute or two.
