Tragic: Wing walker Jane Wicker’s final tweets filled with enthusiasm

Wing walker Jane Wicker and her pilot, Charlie Schwenker, were killed tragically today at an air show in Dayton, Ohio, when a stunt went terribly wrong. Stunned witnesses captured the horror of the moment on video, but Wicker’s Twitter feed paints a much happier picture of a woman eager to entertain no matter the risk.

Wicker was recently grounded with an injury unrelated to her act, and the Dayton show was one of her first following her recovery.

Update:

An interview Wicker did with WDTN-TV in Dayton just before the air show is making the rounds on YouTube.
