Among those killed in the air show crash is Dan Ragan, who lived in Utah for years.
The Commemorative Air Force Utah Wing confirms in a message to KSL that they are mourning the tragic incident.
Ragan was interviewed 11 years ago by the Deseret News about his time in the Navy and as a former B-17 crewmember.
He flew in a specially modified B-17. He told the paper at the time that it was his dream to fly the same plane as his older brother.
According to The Commemorative Air Force, Terry Barker, Craig Hutain, Kevin “K5” Michels, Leonard “Len” Root, and Curt Rowe died in the crash as well.
