What Does a Bad Day Look Like? (At an Air Show)

Airshow Accident

This was a very bad day recently at the Dallas Air Show…

My Dad (who was a WWII fighter pilot and ace – he flew Spitfires and P-51 Mustangs, among others) used to say that there were a whole lot more accidents with aircraft than were ever reported stateside.

Why? Watch the video above and consider: “What are the Safeguards?”

    I don’t think they saw each other. The fighter was behind, and the bomber was under the belly of the fighter. Thus the only Safeguard (visual recognition and avoidance) failed.
