Valley City Air Show Cancelled.
A Kindred, North Dakota pilot who has participated in air shows throughout the country was killed when his plane crashed while he was practicing for a show in Valley City.
66-year-old Bob Odegaard died when his plane went down at the Barnes County Municipal Airport about 6 p.m. Friday.
Witnesses say Odegaard was attempting a barrel roll prior to the crash.
Dennis Helland, chairman of the Barnes County Airport Authority, says Odegaard was a legend in the flying community and was known all over the country.
The air show has been cancelled. Helland says "people that are scheduled to perform ... don't want to fly."
Cause of the crash is not known. Officials from the Federal Aviation Administration arrived on the scene Friday night.
