(Atlantic) Funeral services are pending at Hockenberry Family Care in Atlantic for 50-year-old Bryan Jensen, of Ponte Vedra, Florida.
Bryan Jensen, a graduate of Atlantic High School was piloting a stunt plane that was performing aerobatic maneuvers, such as loops and spiral stunts at an air-show in Kansas City Saturday afternoon. The custom-built bi-plane did a downward spiral but failed to pull up. The plane crashed on the first day of the Kansas City Aviation Expo Air Show.
Bryan Jensen grew up on a farm north of Atlantic and took his first flying lesson when he was 13-years old, soled on his 16th birthday, and as an adult flew jumbo jets for Delta Airlines, according to a website promoting his passion for aerobatic flying. He has been a stunt pilot the past 15-years, when not in the captain’s seat of a 747.
Bryan Jensen had logged some 23,000 hours as a pilot.
