Two historic military aircraft collide at air show.
…and a cardinal sin on rejoining of putting lead out of sight, especially on a flat rejoin to echelon.Looks to me like the Kingcobra was trying to rejoin the B17 and was carrying way too much speed.
Just seeing that now. Looks like several bombers were on a straight-in (left to right) along the show line.There is reporting on Youtube that fighters were on an inside circuit and the B17 was on an outside circuit. There was no formation flying, so somebody (either the Kingcobra or the B17) was out of position.
I can't imagine any new rules coming out of this. Given their non-response to school shootings, this will be gone from the news within a day or two. #CynicNasty accident. I reckon new rules will be initiated asp
Not to take this off topic, but suppose there were adequate and appropriate rules in place, but they were not being obeyed?Nasty accident. I reckon new rules will be initiated asp
It was Texas Raiders.So sad. RIP Airmen.
Do we yet know which B17 it was ?
It was Texas Raiders.
That leaves only 4 flyable B17s, worldwide, I believe.
