KANSAS CITY — A scholarship will be created to honor the memory of a stunt pilot who died while performing at the Kansas City Air Show.
Fifty-year-old Bryan Jensen of Ponte Vedra, Fla., was performing loops and spirals Saturday afternoon when his biplane, named "The Beast," failed to pull out of a dive. The Minnesota native's plane crashed into a fiery ball on the grass next to a runway at Wheeler Downtown Airport.
The show announced Monday that a scholarship will be established through the Mid-American Youth Aviation Association to honor Jensen. Air show officials said details will be announced later.
Jensen was a Minnesota native who grew up in Iowa and went on to fly commercial jetliners.
The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash.
Sunday's show was dedicated to Jensen and went off without any problems.
