Friday's unbelievable plane crash in Reno, Nevada has sent shock waves throughout the country.
Among the crowd of spectators were a father and son both from Houston.
"Everyone assumes (the pilot) is making a mayday," said James Shawn. "Then dives to the ground."
James Shawn, a United Airlines pilot, took pictures of the tragic event capturing the carnage.
Shawn's pictures also captured his son running to help the injured.
"He immediately wants to go help," said the father in tears. "I am so proud."
First Lieutenant James Shawn, a certified EMT, licensed pilot and only 18-years-old.
"I saw an elderly gentleman coming up and he was covered in engine oil," recalls the teen. "He said he was fine but in a shaky voice he said his son is over there and he's gone."
Lieutenant Shawn kept his composure helping victims. His dad jumped in too with the horrible task of tagging the dead.
"After the smell of fuel and oil disappeared and now the smell of human flesh," said the father.
The death toll has risen to ten and federal investigators are still trying to pin point just what went wrong.
Despite what father and son witnessed: they both say their love for aviation will not keep them from going to another air show.
