2 DIE IN AIRSHOW CRASH

Two Royal Navy airmen died when their aircraft plunged into the sea during an airshow Monday, a British official said. The twin-engine navy Jetstream crashed about 300 yards beyond an airfield into Portland Harbor, off England's southwest coast, while making a turn at an airshow for cadets, the spokesman said. "They were simply flying over the station and flew straight into the sea," he said.
