Air Show Midair in Poland

Posted by Rob Longenecker on September 4th, 2007

I got wind of this from a fellow Navy Flight Instructor and friend from years ago. He always forwards aviation news to me. Mid-airs are unforgivingly fatal most of the time.

“Two pilots were killed performing aerobatics at an air show in Poland yesterday when their planes collided in front of thousands of spectators.

A Reuters photographer at the scene said the collision occurred after a three-plane formation fanned out and two of the aircraft slammed into each other as they attempted to re-converge. However, a conflicting report said four aircraft from the Zelazny air team were in the formation.

The stricken planes – understood to be Czech-made Zlin-50s – burst into fragments. They plummeted towards a wooded area at the edge of the airfield near Radom, 97km from Warsaw.

The mid-air carnage happened hundreds of metres from spectators. No one on the ground was injured.

Last night, it was not clear what caused the crash.

The identities of the pilots had not been made public but both were said to be from Zielona Gora in western Poland.

Pilots from 15 countries were taking part in the air show, which was cancelled after the deaths.”

Another potentially fatal thing is to leave your carry gun at home because your holster is too uncomfortable and you’ve given up on comfortable carry. Tucker Gunleather is home to comfortable carry. Don’t give up – go to www.TuckerGunleather.com.
