KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A scholarship will be created to honor the memory of a stunt pilot who died while performing at the Kansas City Air Show.

Bryan Jensen 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 say details will be announced later.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash.

Sunday’s show was dedicated to Jensen and went off without any problems.
