The Dayton Air Show is set to take place this weekend but has already seen a scary crash occur at Dayton International Airport.

The Sheriff's Office said two occupants were reportedly still inside the aircraft on the runway.

No injuries were immediately reported.

A statement Friday from the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds said the F-16D Fighting Falcon was conducting a "single-ship familiarization" and had a "mishap".

Chairman of the Vectren Dayton Air Show Mike Imhoff says the Thunderbird team will determine if they fly or not, and any information about the two people on board, including any injuries that may have been sustained.
