LONDON — An aerobatic stunt plane plummeted to the ground during a routine at a car and music festival in northwest England Saturday, killing the pilot.

Video shot by an eyewitness showed one jet in a two-plane team going into a steep dive and plowing into a wooded area during the CarFest event at the Oulton Park motor-racing track. Photos showed smoke rising from a field near the site, about 200 miles (320 kilometers) northwest of London.
