Report Critical of Lynchburg Air Show

Posted:

Campbell Co., VA - A new report describes the chaos at this year's Lynchburg Air show as a "mass casualty incident".

Officials from Campbell County and Lynchburg outlined point by point what went wrong.

It's a critical report. At one point it states there were more EMS personnel at the smaller Altavista Uncle Billy's Day event.

The report acknowledges how hard it was for emergency crews to transport patients from the spectator area to the EMS tents for treatment.

And it states keeping costs low created tension between emergency crews and show organizers during the planning process.

The report is meant to look at what went wrong so it doesn't happen again.
