1940s-model plane slammed like a missile into a crowded tarmac
Friday.

Ron Morcom Jr. tells the television station Saturday that his brother was killed instantly.

Ron Morcom owns Regal Air at Paine Field in Everett, Wash., and
says he has been going to the air races in Reno with his father for
more than 20 years. He said this was Greg's first trip to the event.

22 year old Michael Wogan of Scottsdale,Arizona was also killed.
Wogan was in a wheelchair from muscular dystrophy, he was in the first few rows of the VIP section when the plane hit the ground.
