They did well getting him out quickly. No information on the wellbeing of pilot. Interesting that it cartwheeled almost on impact. Perhaps a few feet closer to beach would have had a better outcome
AFAIK, the pilot is in hospital, but more or less OK.
The pilot of another aircraft involved in this incident died, unfortunately.
Ahh, sorry for the other guy. I was not aware there had been a previous incident. I assume a mid air?
Sorry to about the overall outcome.
Given the options it seemed a strange choice of landing.
Which options? A crowded beach? Not really. methinks.
Mid-air collision as far as I heard.
Yes, both aircraft were part of a formation flight exhibition.
Here’s another (skin-crawling) video angle. Perfectly done by the pilot. It also shows that the aircraft was heavily damaged (left wing and prop) before the impact.
If you see the video of the collision, you wonder how he even manged to avoid the crash right away. Angels abound…
