Lucky escape for stunt pilots during mid-air collision
Incident took place in a routine performance at the Aero India show
During what was intended to be a routine aerial exhibition, one of the three ‘Flying Bulls’ appeared to veer off course before smashing into an adjacent aircraft.
Fortunately, there were no injuries during the incident, but videos released shortly afterwards showed a crumpled right wing sustained by one of the aircraft involved after it came in for a safe landing.
The team of Czech pilots had performed the same routine during previous shows at the Yelahanka Airforce station in 2011 and 2013 which passed off without incident.
