The aerobatics show will continue, although the investigation into why her plane crashed is continuing.

"I have had the honour to have known Vicki for 14 years," said Mr DeWitt, UAUSA president, in a website blog.

"Both of us flew Christen Eagles in competition, and later, the Edge 540s.

"I will never forget the memories of flying on her wing tip to or from a contest, meeting new friends, and seeing old friends.

"Vicki was an extraordinary person. She was bright, street smart, unassuming, and possessed a twisted sense of humour.

A meeting of the team managers was conducted this morning and all voted to continue the contest in Vicki's memory Norm DeWitt, president of UAUSA
"She enjoyed pulling a prank on any one of us. I will miss her, greatly.

"I feel very lucky to have been one of her close friends."
