In Zelazny,near Warsaw, Poland during a recent airshow, a Polish display team collided killing both pilots, a tragedy captured by photographer Kacper
Pempel who managed to capture the terrible events as they unfolded.
(see link for pics below -warning: some may find the footage disturbing.
The crash was also caught on video here :
Personally I think these type of shows should not be held, there have been
so many terrible tragedies over the years. I have seen an horrific video
on youtube of an airshow from I think it was the Ukraine (correct me if I'm wrong) where a jet fighter crashes into the large crowd which killed
dozens, something that was truly horrifying.
This follows on from a similiar tragedy in Sussex, Britain when the pilot of a WWII Hurricane went down in the countryside on Saturday afternoon
And on a truly unforgettable weekend, for all the wrong reasons, the world lost one of the most talented rally drivers in recent times when the former
World Rally Championship winner Colin McRae, his son Johnny, who was just six years old and his friend's son and a family friend were killed when
Colin's helicopter crashed at Lanark Scotland, just under a mile from his family home.
May they all rest in peace.
