    Background: An American pilot was killed in Amman on Tuesday (3 August) when his light aircraft crashed during an air show. King Hussein was at the show and he saw the accident.

    SYNOPSIS: The pilot 45-year-old David Rahm form Washington state worked for the Royal Jordanian Airlines -- ALIA.

    Mr. Rahm was about half way through his routine watched by King Hussein and other guests when the accident happened. He completed tow rolls in his biplane regaining height without any apparent difficulty but the plane went into a slow dive, during the next manoeuvre which Mr. Rahm was never able to correct.

    The ambulance and fire tender were to no avail. Mr. Rahm died instantly. King Hussein later offered condolences to Mr. Rahm's wife and three children.
