"The plane's attitude on the ground is flat, something the NTSB will be looking at as they conduct their investigation into the cause of this accident" said 7NEWS aviation analyst Steve Cowell.
"The plane, a North American T6, was used to train pilots primarily for World War II aerial combat.
More than 17,000, in all their variants, were built during the war years and shortly afterwards. It was an advanced trainer for pilots who were perfecting their aerial combat maneuvering skills."
Cowell, who knew Miller, said the pilot had performed in air shows for the last two years and flown at the Reno Air Races each year for the last several years.
Miller was head of an organization for enthusiasts of classic and World War II planes called AirPower West.
That particular plane was originally brought to Colorado in 1999 after being utilized by the South African Air Force. Miller was its second local owner.
Miller was a former developer who turned to flying for a local company to earn a living.
Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration are investigating. »
Pereceu, em acidente aéreo, durante os treinos, no dia 9 de Julho de 2009, perto de sua casa, no Colorado.
A excelente versatibilidade do aparelho - pese embora a sua idade -, permite realizar manobras acrobáticas quase inconcebíveis!
O característico 'roncar' do motor, é um som único que aquece a alma de qualquer pessoa apaixonada pela aeronáutica.
